Houston will enjoy some of its last really dry air for six months – Space City Weather

2 min read

Only six weeks ago Houston endured its coldest spell of weather in three decades. Now, we’re on the cusp of a period of much warmer weather, with highs in the upper 80s possible next week. So tonight, as temperatures drop into the upper 40s, be sure and enjoy this taste of fairly cold weather. We probably won’t see its like for another six months, at least.

Thursday

The cold front has come and gone, and except for the coast (where gusts are still in the 30s) winds are beginning to die down. Skies will be sunny today, with highs in the upper 60s to 70 degrees, and a persistent northeasterly wind. As those winds settle down tonight, we’ll see conditions ideal for cooling, with lows dropping into the mid-40s in much of Houston, upper 30s for far inland areas, and low 50s near the coast.

Friday

We’ll enjoy another splendid springtime day, with highs in the upper 60s and more sunshine. As winds shift to come from the east, and then southeast, overnight temperatures will be a few degrees warmer.

Saturday

Clouds will begin to develop Friday night, and Saturday should therefore see mostly cloudy skies to go along with moderate southeasterly winds. Highs will reach about 70 degrees. A bit of an atmospheric disturbance will pass across the region Saturday night, and there may be enough moisture to squeeze out some very light, scattered showers on Saturday night. Lows will drop into the mid- to upper-50s for most.

Easter Sunday

Any showers should be gone by sunrise, and skies for Sunday should be only partly cloudy. Overall, conditions will be pleasant, with highs in the low- to mid-70s. Hide those Easter eggs with confidence!

Next week

The story of next week concerns how warm temperatures will get. I think we may hit the upper 80s by Wednesday or Thursday, along with increasing humidity levels. It won’t be akin to summer in Houston, but it will remind us of what Mother Nature can do as the calendar turns toward April and May. It now looks like our next front may come around Friday, April 9. That’s also when our next chance of significant rain is likely to come. But confidence in that system, and its effects, is rather low at this time.
