Houston-area forecast: Friday cold front brings weekend weather changes

Your weekend weather forecast

If you’re not quite ready for summer weather, this may be your weekend!

A cold front -- and its associated showers -- swept offshore Friday night and the result is below-normal temperatures to southeast Texas on today and Sunday. Very breezy conditions will also be in play

Gusts will be high through 7pm tonight (Copyright 2020 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

Saturday, in particular, will be cool and breezy with a few light showers thrown in the mix. Morning temperatures will be in the upper 50s in the inland areas away from the coast with afternoon readings only in the upper 60s and low 70s. For comparison, the normal high temperature for Houston in mid-April is 80 degrees. Skies will remain cloudy on today and a stiff north wind, gusting to between 20 and 30 miles per hour, will help to reinforce the cool air and probably make for a messy hair day. Not the best of days.

Showers stick around, especially coastal counties (KPRC)
Breezy conditions for Saturday (KPRC)

Any sun we see today will likely be in the northern counties with enough breaks in the clouds to help us warm up a bit in the early afternoon. The normal high temperature this time of the year is 80 degrees at Bush Intercontinental Airport but we’ll stay well below that today.

Temperatures will remain at or below normal for the remainder of the week ahead. Our next decent chance for rain will come as we head into next weekend.

Cool and breezy start to this ten day forecast (KPRC)
