Temperatures this morning have fallen to around 40 degrees across most of Houston, and we’ll continue to see cold weather through the weekend. Super Bowl week will be warmer.

Today through Sunday

The weather today is more or less the same as what we’re going to see through Monday morning, with mostly north-northwesterly breezes, highs of about 60 to 65 degrees, and overnight lows around 40 degrees, give or take. Skies will remain mostly sunny.

Monday through Wednesday

The forecast for the first half of Super Bowl week is pretty well locked in too. Highs by Monday will rise into the upper 60s, and should reach the lower 70s by Wednesday. Overnight lows, too, will gradually climb from the low- to mid-40s on Monday morning into the 50s by Wednesday morning. Rain chances will remain near zero, however, as the onshore flow doesn’t really begin to pick up until Tuesday, as after such a period of prolonged drier air advection it will take some time for moisture levels to recover.

Houston will host Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5th, at 5:30pm CT. Here’s an early look ahead at the forecast for Super Bowl week in Houston, and for the game itself.

Super Bowl week

We can have fairly high confidence that Sunday, Jan. 30th, Monday and probably Tuesday of Super Bowl week will have fairly chilly weather—for Houston. All available climate signals point toward highs of around 60 to 65 degrees, with lows of about 40 degrees.

The question then comes as to what happens from Wednesday through about Friday? Some of the guidance suggests fairly rapid warming, with high temperatures rebounding into the upper 70s. However other models bring another front through by Tuesday or Wednesday, to keep the colder weather going through most of Super Bowl week. I don’t see any real clarity in the forecast at this point, I’m afraid.

In terms of precipitation, I don’t see any kind of a washout in the cards, but some light precipitation is possible toward the middle or end of next week.

Super Bowl weekend

And what of the big game? Regardless of the midweek front, the GFS ensembles are leaning toward a warmer game weekend, with a high temperature in the upper 60s to mid-70s on Saturday or Sunday.

In regard to the European model, many of the ensembles are suggesting a fairly strong cold front might move through sometime during the first week of February. If that happens before Sunday game time temperatures might be quite chilly, in the 40s or 50s. If it doesn’t, we could be back to highs of around 80 degrees by Saturday, Jan. 4th and Super Bowl Sunday. One forecast we can have confidence in: The roof will be closed, regardless.
