Sorry I’m late this morning with an update, but there was a surprise announcement this morning from Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ rocket company. They’ve successfully landed a rocket booster in West Texas and that’s a huge deal.
Anyway, on to the weather. After lows in the 40s this morning Houston is warming quickly and we’ll get into the low 70s today under partly to mostly sunny skies. Should be a great day.
WEDNESDAY and THANKSGIVING
We’ll continue to see warming conditions for the middle of this week as the onshore flow resumes and humidity levels rise. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will likely climb to nearly 80 degrees. Rain will also be possible later on Thanksgiving, especially during the afternoon and evening hours, although I’d expect light rain at most.
FRIDAY and THE WEEKEND
My official forecast for the weekend is: Who the heck knows.
That’s because the forecast models are continuing to struggle with the timing of a cool front, and how far south it moves. The slow-moving system is likely to generate rain showers, so there’s the possibility of light to moderate rain from Friday through Sunday, but I don’t expect accumulations of above 1 to 2 inches for most areas. Expect higher amounts inland than along the coast. As for predicting when it will rain? Hah. Who the heck knows.
Temperatures are also highly dependent on the front. We could be anywhere from the low 60s on Saturday to the mid-70s, and lows could be relatively cool, in the 50s, or pretty muggy in the upper 60s.
I’m hoping for the former because I’ve got to knock out a 16 mile run on Sunday morning, and I’d rather not sweat like an omnivorous domesticated hoofed mammal with sparse bristly hair and a flat snout.
