Rodeo Weather?

Storms rolled through this afternoon, a little stronger than expected but for most the rain is over.  There were even a few tornado warnings, and funnel clouds were spotted in Montgomery county.  High winds damaged a home and knocked trees down near Shepherd in San Jacinto County.  There may be a few lingering showers and stronger storms, mainly north of town tonight as the front which sparked today's rain moves off the coast by early Tuesday morning.  This picture shows the last of the rains moving off toward Louisiana.

So, what's next?  The calendar says it's rodeo time - does that mean rodeo weather?  Maybe...
After a brief cool-down Tuesday, milder weather returns Wednesday, along with clouds and light rain.  A stronger front arrives Thursday and we could be in for rough storms then.  Take note if you're headed to the first day of the World's Largest Bar-B-Q at Reliant Park.  As the trail riders arrive in Memorial Park Friday, it should be cool, but not cold.  Right now, the parade looks good - partly cloudy and mild.  However, check back through the week - if Thursday's front stalls, rain chances could linger.  

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with a few lingering showers, mainly east and north.  Temperatures falling from the mid 60s at night to the much cooler mid 40s by morning.  Breezy northwest winds 10-15 mph after midnight.

TUESDAY: Cool start with mostly sunny morning skies becoming partly cloudy by afternoon.  Highs in the seasonable mid to upper 60s.  North winds early becoming easterly by later afternoon 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Cool and overcast for most of the day with occasional periods of light rain developing by afternoon.  Temperatures start in the mid 40s and may not get above 60° during the afternoon.  Steady cool east wind 10-15 mph.
