A hot, humid and mainly dry weather pattern is forecast for SE Texas through the Memorial Day weekend.

Tonight, partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies are forecast with breezy southeasterly winds. Low temperatures will range from the lower/middle 70’s in the Lakes to the middle/upper 70’s in the Triangle.

Friday through the weekend looks dry with mostly sunny to partly cloudy afternoons. Upper-level high pressure will move closer to East Texas over the weekend. High temperatures will inch upwards to around 90 each afternoon because of this.

Memorial Day looks hot, humid and mainly dry. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a few showers due to a bit of a surge of gulf moisture and a bit of instability.

By the middle of next week, the upper-level high will break down allowing scattered showers and thunderstorms to return to the area by Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
