Emerging from an early season chill with milder temps this weekend for Texas

After lows in the 30s across many spots yesterday morning, we’re waking up a touch less cold today. Some clouds in the region and a return to onshore winds have ensured we begin the transition back to something less winter-like and more autumn-like for a few days.

Compared to Thursday morning, temperatures are running anywhere from 5 to 20+ degrees warmer this morning across southeastern Texas (NOAA)

Rain will be at a premium over the next week or so, with our best rain chances probably holding off until next Thursday or so ahead of what should be our next cool front.

Today and the weekend

So if you have any plans this weekend, we don’t expect any real complications to impact you weather-wise. Look for highs in the mid-70s today and upper-70s to around 80 or so on Saturday and Sunday. Morning lows will be in the 50s tomorrow and probably close to 60 or so on Sunday. Winds look fairly light. We may see a little additional cloud cover Saturday and especially Sunday, but no rain is currently expected.

Monday and Tuesday

We’ll transition back more to an early autumn type pattern here with highs in the 80s and partly sunny skies. Morning lows will also bulk up into the 60s. Rain chances remain fairly low, though a couple isolated showers or sprinkles cannot be ruled out. Weather should not impede voting on Tuesday.

Mid to late week

Wednesday is going to be very warm and very humid. Look for morning lows well into the 60s and daytime highs well into the 80s. Can we print out a rogue 90 degree day? I would give it about a 15 percent chance. We’re more likely to hit 86 to 88, but you definitely cannot rule out 90 entirely. Houston has never recorded a 90 degree day in November, so this would be decidedly abnormal. We’ll see.

High temperatures on Wednesday probably won’t hit 90 degrees, but the chances aren’t zero. (Pivotal Weather)

A cold front will likely end the hotter weather by Thursday or Friday, with highs backpedaling into the 70s and lows in the 50s. There’s a bit of uncertainty beyond the front regarding whether we clear out entirely or see lingering clouds and rain chances. But it will turn cooler. More Monday!

  1. It must be nice to live somewhere where it stays cool with low humidity throughout the entire fall and winter. It is so frustrating that we go from highs in the 40s with near freezing mornings straight to near 90 and muggy in less than a week. It is ridiculous. And we are getting more and more 80+ degree days during the winter months on average than ever before. I am fairly confident that by 2030 we will start seeing 90 degree days even in December and January. It’s already happened a few times in Feburary throughout history. There just really isn’t much moderation between the temperature extremes anymore. We bounce from excessive warmth straight to blistering cold right back to excessive warmth again. Our climate has always been sorta like that but it is definitely more pronounced in recent years.
