HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A cool front will push drier air through Southeast Texas overnight, which will deliver some delightful weather for the first half of the weekend.
Overnight lows will dip into the upper 50s after the dry air arrives, but all that dry air heats up quickly. Afternoon highs will peak in the mid 80s under a sunny sky. Conditions will be ideal for the formation of ozone pollution, and we are under an ozone pollution watch for Saturday afternoon. Ozone is a lung irritant and can trigger asthma attacks in sensitive individuals.
How does the rest of the weekend look?
Sunday starts of cool and crisp for most of Southeast Texas, but by sunrise a warm front will already be pushing clouds and showers back into our coastal counties. The warm front will rapidly spread clouds and rain chances through the rest of Southeast Texas by noon. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will pop up on our Live MegaDoppler13 radar through the afternoon, but it should dry up for the evening.
What can we expect in Houston as Final Four weekend approaches?
Next week's weather pattern looks a little unsettled. Another cool front blows in Monday with a 60% chance for more scattered showers and thunderstorms. Cooler and drier air filters in Tuesday, which should bring the rain chance down and allow temperatures to dip into the 50s by Wednesday morning. Then the warm, humid air pushes back inland for the rest of the week to bring back rain chances. Another front may roll in next Saturday to dry things out for the rest of Final Four weekend.
