HOUSTON (KIAH) — Cool and breezy weather will last all Saturday, but Sunday will be much warmer as a fresh southerly wind brings another change in weather as we start next week. In fact, we are expecting record heat on Tuesday.
Saturday: First of all, a closer look at the weekend reveals that there is plenty of sunshine on Saturday. Mornings start cold with lows in the 30s for Greater Houston (but not freezing). By noon it will warm up to 60 degrees.
Sunday: Sunday winds will be crisp, blowing from the south with gusts up to 20 mph in Houston and 25 mph in Galveston. Saturday night’s low of 50 in Houston will occur early in the night, then gradually warm up overnight to a low and mid-50s by sunrise on Sunday when the marathon kicks off. The day will bring the highs of the 70s.
The start of the next working week will be even warmer, with the warmest day on Tuesday. Tuesday’s record high for January 17 is 80, so we could set a new daily record again this month.
As for rain, I’ve lowered the chance of Monday to 20% as only sporadic showers are expected on MLK Day. The odds for Wednesday still look pretty good before our next cold front arrives.
