A cold front that moved through Houston Friday afternoon will usher in cool, fresh spring air just in time for us to celebrate Mother’s Day.

The front sparked a line of showers and storms that brought needed water to drought-stricken areas south of Houston, especially. And, while the weather wasn’t severe in southeast Texas, storms in Louisiana associated with the same cold front packed a wicked punch, prompting severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings.

Behind the front, dry skies will take over in the Houston area. Temperatures will be comfortable, in the 60s and 70s during the evening and overnight hours. Temperatures will be the weather headline throughout the weekend, too, as they stay below normal from start to finish. If you’re up early enough in the morning on Saturday or Sunday, you’ll need a light jacket or sweater!

A very cool start to Saturday.  Keep a light jacket or sweater on standby this weekend!

Saturday afternoon temperatures will hold in the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies. On Mother’s Day, temperatures will be in the lower 80s under full sunshine. Consider it Mother Nature’s treat to all the other mothers out there!

Cool, pleasant weather for Saturday.

Eventually, heat and humidity will return to the area, but that won’t be until the middle of next week. Rain chances look slim going forward, with no well-organized systems expected to impact the area next week.
