How Long It Stays Soggy

Thanks to @MichaelJ0rdan (don't think it's that Jordan), a twitter follower who snapped this great pic of a rainbow near Wildcact Golf Club, south of Houston this afternoon.  If you look closely, you can see the faint double rainbow above the more visible one.  It was visible in between intermittent rounds of rain sparked as an upper-level disturbance drifted across Southeast Texas today.  More of a nuisance than a deluge, but it may be the beginning of a trend over the next few days.  However, there are chances that later this week, the rainfall could become more widespread and may be accompanied by thunder.

As for that cool down; it is still expected to arrive next week, but now the time frame may be pushed out to later in the week.  Several more rounds of rain are expected this weekend lasting into the early part of next week.  So the bottom line is. keep the umbrella handy but you may not need the jackets and coats until after Valentine's Day.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with occasional periods of rain early.  Areas of fog developing overnight into the pre-dawn hours.  Mild with temperatures falling to the upper 50s to near 60.  Winds from the east 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Cloudy with fog lingering through mid-morning; may be dense in spots.  Low clouds, fog lift by mid-morning then skies becoming mostly cloudy in the afternoon with some hints of sun.  Mild with highs in the mid 70s.  East winds 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Cloudy, foggy and mild in the morning. Mostly cloudy during the afternoon with showers developing into the evening accompanied by occasional thunderstorms.  Lows in the morning in the upper 50s, rising to around 70° by afternoon.  East to southeast winds 5-10 mph.
