Arguably, this is one of the best times of the year in Houston - Rodeo Season. The trail riders are getting closer to Memorial Park and Thursday night, the smell of BBQ permeates the NRG Stadium parking lot. The World Championship BBQ gets underway - its just another excuse to par-tay as well as enjoy the great food!
The weather this time of year is always problematic; it can run the gamut from cold and clammy to muggy and stormy. This year, its the former as Wednesday's winter storm that struck our neighbors to the north moves out and cooler, windy weather arrives. The first two nights of BBQ will be chilly in the mid 40s and then it gets even colder Friday as clouds move back in. By the time of the big parade downtown Saturday, it'll be in the 30s and there might be a few light sprinkles. It should stay liquid, however, no worry for ice or snow.
The Norman Number for Thursday, February 26 in Houston is 6. After a chilly start, temperatures moderate to the mid 50s with a mix of sun and clouds and a steady north wind. Jacket weather for sure.
