Sunshine, low humidity, and temperatures in the 70s to near 80: What a way to end the work week! The weekend weather is pretty swell, too. Temperatures inch upwards and so do humidity levels, but nothing close to oppressive.
Through Tonight: It’s beautiful out there. Temperatures gradually fall back through the 70s this evening, with 60s after 9 or 10 p.m. By early morning, lows range from near 50 in our cooler suburbs to near 60 downtown. Light winds.
The weekend: Both days are mostly sunny, with highs 80-85 Saturday (after a chilly start in the 50s – jackets a good idea early on), and 83-88 Sunday. Humidity is comfortably low Saturday, but sneaks into the moderate range Sunday. No weather worries Saturday night, with clear skies and low from the mid-50s in our cooler suburbs to low 60s downtown. By Sunday night, there will be a decent chance of some thunderstorms. So stay tuned to our forecasts and updates over the weekend.
Pollen: Trees counts are MODERATE, grass counts are HIGH, weed counts are LOW, and mold spore levels are MODERATE-HIGH.
First tropical depression may form in Atlantic basin: In the southwest Gulf of Mexico, an area of disturbed weather has a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression this evening or tonight, before moving inland over Mexico. “Whether a tropical depression forms or not, this disturbance could produce heavy rains, along with life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, over portions of southeastern and eastern Mexico during the next few days,” cautions the National Hurricane Center.
