Friday's 'drizzerable' weather will give way to pleasant weekend

HOUSTON – Clouds and periods of rain will continue to plague Southeast Texas Friday into Saturday morning, but there is hope on the horizon. Weekend changes will brighten our skies by Sunday.

Houston's current cloud cover, which is the combined product of Gulf and Pacific moisture streaming into Texas, will stay very thick and keep skies gloomy for Friday.

Scattered rain embedded within the cloud cover will keep conditions damp through Saturday morning.


While there is little short-term relief from the gray, damp weather, there is some good news in terms of temperature.

A warm front will shift winds back on shore Friday. South winds will blanket the region in warmer weather Friday afternoon with temperatures close to 70 degrees.


A potent cold front will move through Houston Saturday morning, finally bringing an end to the rain and cloudiness. After showers and isolated storms ahead of the front on Saturday morning, skies will begin to clear out for Saturday afternoon.

That will leave cooler but much sunnier weather for Sunday.
