Ahhh...feels like winter again (by Houston standards, anyway). One down side is the cedar pollen blown in by Wednesday's gusty winds. That may be why you're sneezing! Not sure how long that will stay around, but I can tell you that the chill in the air won't last much longer. It should be gone by the weekend. Just in time for...Mardi Gras on Galveston. The two week celebration on the Island kicks off tomorrow. The weather looks to cooperate this weekend. Tomorrow will be coolest day with highs in the mid 60s, but both Saturday and Sunday look good. Mornings will be mild in the mid 50s and highs near 70°. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, but when you're partying - you may not quite see the sky...
TONIGHT: Clear, cool and continued dry. Temperatures falling into the low 50s in the evening and down to the low 40s by sunrise in Houston. Some far northern suburbs fall into the mid to upper 30s. Mid to upper 40s along the coast. Light and variable winds becoming southeast 2-5 by sunrise.
NORMAN NUMBER FOR FRIDAY: 8
FRIDAY: Cool morning with mostly sunny skies. Becoming much milder by afternoon. Highs in the mid to upper 60s. Southeast winds 5-10 mph.
NORMAN NUMBER FOR SATURDAY: 8
SATURDAY: Not quite as cool in the morning with mostly sunny skies, then becoming partly cloudy by afternoon. Lows in the morning in the low 50s, rising to the low 70s by afternoon.
Southeast winds 10-15 mph.
