Thursday provided some mostly welcome rain for a large swath of the region. For the city of Houston, anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of rain fell. Generally lesser amounts fell to the north and higher amounts to the south.
The bullseyes were near Barker Reservoir and out through Cinco Ranch, where 4 to nearly 5 inches of rain was reported on Thursday. Another bullseye was noted from Friendswood through Kemah and San Leon, where 2 to 4 inches generally fell. Dreary weather hangs in today, but a nice weekend awaits.
The title of this post includes the word “drearies.” Debate whether or not that’s a real word, but you can guess what it means. Look for clouds all day today. In addition, the region should see periods of light rain or drizzle throughout the day. A period of steadier rain is possible for a time this morning or afternoon. You can see some of that moving across the state on radar.
Additional rain totals today will range from about a tenth of an inch to perhaps up to a half-inch where the steadier rain falls. Temperatures will not move much, likely staying in the low- to mid-50s most of the day.
Showers should wrap up early this evening.
Clouds could be a bit stubborn on Saturday, but skies will either clear out before sunrise or they’ll clear out on Saturday morning. Either way, a mainly sunny afternoon is expected. After morning lows in the 40s, high temperatures will peak in the low- to mid-60s.
After a cool start (around 50°) on Sunday morning, look for sunshine and highs in the upper-60s to low-70s Sunday afternoon. Sunday will see plenty of sunshine, though clouds could increase later in the day.
