Multiple Rain Chances Bring Much Needed Heat Relief This Week

Daily rain chances are on tap to kick off the work week

Stormy at times to kick off the work week

Monday’s forecast:

Monday will be the driest day of the first three of the week, mostly cloudy and warmer again with winds switching to a more gulf oriented flow. Highs will climb back into the mid to upper 80s.

Warm again but dry to kick off the work week

Be prepared to adjust your plans over the next few days. Multiple disturbances will bring along chances for rain early Tuesday, late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and again Wednesday afternoon/evening with a second cold front.

Heavy rain is likely at times on Tuesday
Another cold front will bring more rounds of rain this week

This upcoming weather pattern change can make a big dent in our statewide drought. We’ll see a few storm systems and cold fronts that will swing across the area. The futurecast model indicates as much as 4 inches by Wednesday night. The good news is we’ll see some much needed rainfall and cooler afternoons in the 80s!

Rainfall totals this week:

Rain expected through Wednesday night (KPRC)

10-day Forecast:

Highs will be in the 80s starting Monday and lasting through next week! Add that to some much needed rain chances and yes, the roads are always tricky when it rains around Houston, but we’ll take what we can get!

Tropics Update:

Yes, we’re still 10 days ahead of the kickoff of the 2022 tropical season but the NHC has been watching a little system trying to gain some spin south of Mobile, Alabama. It will make “landfall” late Sunday night and is no threat to turn into an actual tropical storm or hurricane. But a good indicator that the season is approaching and now is the time to get your hurricane kit prepped!

A weak low pressure area is trying to look like our first tropical disturbance of the season!
