Good morning. A complex of showers and thunderstorms to the west of Houston associated with a large convective system appears to be fading this morning, and I don’t think it will impinge too much on our region today. That’s not to say rain chances will be zero. Overall, however, we should continue to see warm, mostly sunny and not-too muggy weather for the next several days.
Today will bring partly sunny skies, with highs around 90 degrees, and light northeasterly winds. This morning areas to the west of Houston, including Katy and Cypress, will see a chance of thunderstorms and briefly strong winds due to the storm complex over central Texas. These storms should wind down this morning. Later this afternoon, with daytime heating, I expect some additional shower and thunderstorm development through the early evening hours, although this should be fairly scattered across Houston. Lows will drop to around 70 degrees.
Skies should be mostly sunny on Thursday, with high temperatures again bouncing around 90 degrees. With daytime heating there will be about a 10 percent chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours.
Look for mostly sunny skies and highs around 90 degrees.
Memorial Day Weekend
Saturday and Sunday, at this point, look like carbon copies of one another. With high pressure in place we can expect a pair of partly to mostly sunny days with high temperatures around 90 degrees, and overnight lows around 70 degrees, plus or minus depending on how far inland you are. With dewpoints in the 60s, the air will feel less sticky than it normally does during the summer, so that will be nice.
Memorial Day should bring more of the same, albeit with a few more clouds and a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon with daytime heating.
As the onshore flow reestablishes itself, we’ll see increasing humidity, but daytime temperatures should remain in the upper 80s to 90 degree range. A moistening atmosphere will make for somewhat better rain chances, so for now I’ll ballpark in a daily 30 percent chance during the afternoon hours.

It was looking like it could be kind of stormy out here to the west about an hour and a half ago, lots of blobs of deep red on the radar just to the northwest, but the line quickly fizzled out before reaching Sealy, and all we ended up with were a few drops and sprinkles, enough to make everything damp. Also getting a nice, rain cooled breeze temporarily knocking the temp down a degree or two.
Need rain. Rain. Where’s the rain. Inner loop dry as can be.
Didn’t think it was dry there. According to water dot weather dot gov slash precip , it shows about 6-8″ of rain in the past 30 days. Seems like plenty.
A lot of rain at IAH. Not so much at Hobby. About 3” below normal currently. Big geo variation. Inside loop last measured rain was May 20 and May 21 shower activity – couple of hours each day. When the crushed granite trails are kicking up dust, it’s dry. Must be the heat island and consequent cap striking again. Like KDN noted the rains west on radar all just dissipated this morning.
Correction: May 13 and 14 (not 20 and 21) for the last showers of minor precipitation here. I am hoping your wx-vibes will help, but I see the SUN is coming out to play now.
Why is the storms fading this morning?
I start most of my bike rides in Sealy these days – since the traffic from Katy and Brookshire is pretty awful these days with all the development on former rice fields, so my first look at the weather is usually to see what’s likely to be happening in Sealy. So a little nudge to the west on the forecast would be most helpful. 🙂
