Houston, Texas

We’re headed to a part of the world that was very much in the news for its weather this summer. The good news is, Houston is on a path towards recovery, and part of it will be this week. How is it going to look?

At 1153,PM, CT, Houston was reporting mostly cloudy skies and a soupy 71 degrees with a dew point in the upper 60s. Low pressure was developing over west Texas, while a jet ridge was strengthening, pressing northeast towards the middle of the country.  On shore flow across Houston will keep things humid and mostly cloudy, even as high pressure settled in over the Gulf.
Behind the ridge in the middle of the country is a negatively tilted trough, with the west Texas low sitting in the deepest point. A surface feature will move to the northeast, towards the Great Lakes, and help drive some cold air southeastward and advance the trough. As a cold front approaches Texas, the onshore flow will kick into high gear. While the strong thunderstorms will stay inland on Tuesday, expect a near constant threat of low clouds and rain, with an isolated stroke of lightning.
