If you feel like summer will never come to an end, you're not exactly alone...or wrong. By this time each year, Houston has typically had at least one decent cold front push through the area. This year, nothing yet and, unfortunately, there isn't anything definite on the horizon.

And while we wait for cooler weather, we deal with the rainforest. This entire week has been a mix of sun and clouds and fairly widespread afternoon showers. Who gets the rain and how much depends on the day although areas along the coast continue to be inundated.
We'd like to tell you that all that will change this weekend, but alas, it won't. You may want to go out and buy decorative gourds for your autumn decorations. You might even do it. But if you're planning on throwing on a sweater, you're probably just going to get sweatier than usual.
Every day between now and Monday (and likely into next week as well), there is between a 40 and 60 percent chance of rain, particularly in the afternoon hours. You'll probably see just enough sun for temperatures to get up around 90 degrees on Thursday and maybe Friday. After that, expect mostly soggy and sticky conditions through the weekend.
It's an ugly forecast without a whole lot of hope on the horizon. Forecast models are calling for a decent cool front next weekend...maybe. But 10-day forecasts are very iffy and there is no way we could have any certainty about them at this point. So, we wait...in the rain.
