Playoff Weather - GO TEXANS!!

By Gene Norman

Maybe a victory will warm the hearts of Houstonians, weary from this recent spate of cold, wintry weather.  We can only hope!  In the meantime, some of the chill will wear off this weekend, but don't put those umbrellas away just quite yet.  A disturbance sliding across Texas that brought a mix of rain and sleet here will finally move away, but not before dragging a cold front through southeast Texas.  Here's a depiction for 1 pm Saturday:

So, if you're tailgating or going to the game vs. the Bengals, be sure to pack the rain gear.  The best hope is that most of the rain moves out by halftime with skies remaining cloudy as fans leave, hopefully in a good mood.  It will also be cool so wear a sweatshirt or coat under that jersey and poncho.  

After that, well finally see some sunshine returning for Sunday and the first part of next week.  However, another rainmaker moves in by midweek.

TONIGHT: Cloudy and chilly with periods of light rain returning in the overnight hours.  Again, some of the rain could mix with sleet in neighborhoods mainly north of Houston.  Temperatures mainly in the upper 30s to low 40s.  Northeast winds 5-10 mph.

SATURDAY: Periods of steady to moderate rain through mid-afternoon, then remaining cloudy and cool with highs at or below 50°. Northeast winds 10-15 mph.

SUNDAY: Cloudy and cold start with gradually increasing sunshine by afternoon.  Morning lows again in the upper 30s to low 40s, but warming to the low 60s by afternoon.  North winds 5-10 mph.
