Good morning and welcome to my look at the week ahead.
Moist air has begun returning from the Gulf of Mexico, in fact the relative humidity at Bush Intercontinental Airport was 100 percent this morning at 6 a.m. We’ll nonetheless have a pleasant enough day, with highs in the upper 70s and mostly sunny skies.

We’ll see very warm conditions for mid-November on Wednesday, with high temperatures likely rising into the low 80s across most of the area and ample humidity. During the afternoon and evening hours we’ll also see scattered rain chances as a front approaches Houston, and crosses through sometime on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. I can’t see most areas getting more than a few tenths of an inch of rain, if that. Read More…

I will get to the outlook for later this month in a minute. Let’s start with today.
It’s a wonderfully cool start to the morning, with temperatures in the low 50s across most of the Houston area. We’ll have another dry, pleasant day with highs in the low 70s. Enjoy the splendid fall weather!
Beginning tonight we’ll see a return flow of more moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, allowing highs to rise into the upper-70s on Tuesday, and low-80s on Wednesday. Additionally Tuesday night’s low temperatures should fall only to around 70 degrees for much of the metro area. Blech! But it won’t last. Read More…

The forecast for Houston remains pretty much the same as I’ve been saying all week.
A weak cool front today, followed by a stronger front on Saturday, will bring Houston a good chance of light to moderate rain today, Saturday and Sunday morning. Accumulations for most areas — with the possible exception of areas far to the northwest such as College Station — are unlikely to exceed 1-2 inches. If that.
Rain seems most likely Saturday, from sunrise to early afternoon.
As the stronger cold front arrives on Saturday we’ll see increasing winds throughout the day, with gusts in the mid-20s possible during the afternoon and evening hours.
There’s quite the temperature gradient across Texas this morning. That cooler air is one the way. (Weather Bell)

Good morning, and welcome to my daily update on weather in the greater Houston area.
Fog across parts of the area will burn off this morning, leading to a partly to mostly cloudy day that should hold temperatures in the upper 70s for most of Houston. Lows tonight will be muggy, with temperatures only falling into the upper 60s.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY
On Thursday a fairly slow moving front will cross into central Texas, and edge its way toward the Houston area. This front has the potential to generate some severe weather, but the threat of damaging winds and tornadoes appears most likely to remain well to the northwest of the Houston metro area.
