Cloudy, Cool For Trail Riders
It's time to GO TEXAN! This is the day when people who usually wear a suit and tie don their favorite western gear - right down to the boots. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo begins next week, but it really revs up today as the trailriders descend on Memorial Park.
Unfortunately, there won't be much sun and you'll need a jacket to cover those fancy duds. Overcast skies and a steady northeast wind keeps the temperatures in the 40s for most of the day. The actual high may briefly hit 50°. More often than not, this is the kind of weather we get this time of year. Winds aloft come in from the southwest riding up over that cooler surface air, keeping the weather cool and the clouds in place.
Right now, its looking chilly for the parade and there could still be a few spotty sprinkles as things wrap up.
The Norman Number in Houston for Friday, February 27 is 5.
