This week’s weather will be consistently warm, humid, and mostly cloudy

Summary: After several days of sunny weather, a more southerly flow will take hold of Houston’s weather and that will bring us warm days and nights, mostly cloudy skies, and generally humid weather. This pattern of highs in the mid- to upper-80s will hold until the weekend, when a weak front is likely to move into the area, bringing showers with it.

Most of Texas, aside from the Panhandle, is starting the work week warm. (Weather Bell)


Highs today will max out in the low 80s, as the warm southwesterly flow that will bring warmer weather this week is not yet in place. But there will be plenty of moisture in the atmosphere and, accordingly, mostly cloudy skies. Winds will blow from the south at about 10 mph, with occasional gusts up to 20 mph. Lows tonight will drop only to around 70 degrees in Houston.


The area may see a few isolated to scattered showers early on Tuesday in association with a front that will die far to our west, but otherwise we’ll continue to see mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the mid-80s with a warm, southerly breeze.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday

These days will be warm. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, but if we get some breaks in the sunshine during the afternoon hours some locations could hit 90 degrees. For the most part, however, we’ll be in the mid- to upper-80s with plenty of humidity. Nights will be very warm for April as well, with lows only dropping into the low-70s. Rain chances are not non-existent, but they’re likely around 10 percent each day.

Friday may well be the hottest day of the week. (Weather Bell)

Saturday and Sunday

The weekend forecast remains in a bit of flux, depending on the timing of a weak front. My best guess is that Saturday brings partly sunny weather, with highs in the mid- to upper-80s, and that there’s a decent chance of rain Saturday evening or overnight ahead of the front. Rain chances linger on Sunday, with highs perhaps in the 70s and some modestly drier air. In a day or two we should be able to iron out some of these details.

Next week

After a couple of cooler days, and nights with lows perhaps around 60 degrees, we’ll probably be back in the mid-80s by the middle of next week.

    • Agreed. I am so DONE with this weather and being so hot all the time. It’s expected in the summer but not this time of year. I’m heading for cooler pastures. I can’t freakin do this anymore.

    • Unfortunately we won’t know that until we get there. The summer just like any other season is very unpredictable for the most part. My bet is that this years summer will probably not be as extreme as last summer. Historically, we usually do not have more than 2 extreme heat and drought stricken summers in a row. However, that is not much to go on because the weather patterns are very cyclical in nature. Also, as the Earth continues to warm, summers like 2023 and 2011 will probably happen more often I’m afraid.

    • I hope not, I’m not ready for that water and electricity bill…. That reminds me, I should get my AC checked.

  1. I missed the timing and reason for change from Space City Weather to Apparent Grace. Please update me. Thanks.

  2. I know it is far out but are the tea leaves saying anything about weather for MS150 ride?
