If Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer, our weather is certainly going to cooperate. After a few unseasonably cool weeks and a couple good rainstorms to help ease concerns over drought, it appears as though we have finally broken through into typical Houston summer weather. Once we clear through the next couple days when some unstable air could produce a shower or two, the heart of the holiday weekend will be hot and sunny.
Friday and Saturday are forecast to be partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of rain. The same unstable air that has generated the devastating and violent weather across Tornado Alley is still lingering and might generate a shower or two for the Houston area, but chances are low and, if it does, it will more than likely be isolated.
Come Sunday and into the Monday Memorial Day holiday, rain chances should fall to nearly zero. Expect a light breeze off the Gulf and a mix of some clouds with abundant sunshine. If you were planning on sitting around the pool or maybe hitting the beach, you should definitely pack the sunscreen. But if you like the heat and sun, you will not be disappointed.
Highs both Sunday and Monday are going to push 90 degrees, and humidity will be up in the 70 percent range, so stay cool and hydrated. Have a nice three-day weekend!
