By now you know the drill for our upcoming weather: Houston and the rest of Texas will feel the influence of a large area of high pressure over the coming week, with heat likely peaking this weekend. Rain chances are effectively non-existent for at least the next seven days, and likely longer.
Thursday and Friday
A mix of clouds and sunshine will help to moderate temperatures slightly, keeping high temperatures in the mid-90s. South winds of about 10mph will offer only a little relief from the heat and humidity, and overnight temperatures will only drop into the upper 70s. Rain chances are near zero.
Saturday and Sunday
The weekend looks extremely hot, with most areas except the coast potentially reaching 100 degrees. Expect sunny days and clear nights.
First half of next week
The pattern remains more or less the same. Temperatures may back off slightly into the upper 90s, but it will still be hot-hot-hot with ample sunshine.
When does this pattern change?
We’re likely locked into this pattern through at least Thursday or Friday of next week before the high pressure may ease off, allowing for clouds to develop, and bringing back at least the potential for some rain showers. Stay safe, y’all.
