The story of Saturday is one of warmth! Record high minimum temperatures at Bush/IAH, Hobby Airport and College Station has set the tone for the day ahead. Warm Gulf breezes will enhance our high temperatures for the day.

Our normal Houston high temperature is 73 degrees for this time of the year. All of southeast Texas will be above that Saturday afternoon. We will be shy of record highs, which are in the upper 80s, but it will be plenty warm for the 14 of March.

Along with the warm temperatures, those of us with allergies will feel it as the oak pollen count is extremely high. Itchy eyes are in the forecast for this weekend for sure.
