Space City Weather

Hello, spring?

On the last day of February it seems like we’re about to enter a transition period from winter to more consistently spring-like weather. In other words, we’re not going to see cold weather any time soon.

TODAY

Some areas are seeing fog that should burn off later this morning. Otherwise, as moisture returns from the Gulf of Mexico, we’ll see a warm, cloudy day with highs in the mid- to upper-70s. There’s a slight chance of rain. Lows tonight won’t fall far — only into the 60s.

TUESDAY

After another cloudy and warm day a cold front will arrive later on Tuesday. We’ll have another slight chance of rain, but a capping inversion should prevent widespread activity. Rain chances appear to be best well to the northeast of Houston. Lows should fall to around 50 degrees during the night.

WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY

In the wake of Tuesday’s cool front we should see three spring-like days, with sunny skies, highs in the 70s, and lows in the 50s. These conditions will be hard to beat.

THE WEEKEND

We should start to see the return of more moisture on Saturday, which will lead to slightly warmer days in the upper 70s, and overnight lows in the upper 50s. We may also see cloudier skies.

BIG STORMS?

Forecast models have been hinting at heavier rainfall returning to Houston during the middle of next week, although this far out it’s difficult to have too much confidence.
