THE WOODLANDS, TX – It’s hard to keep up with constantly shifting weather patterns and the official alerts that go along with them. It seems that each week we promise stormy weather, and each time it seems to skirt right around the central Woodlands area to the point where we just get kissed with slick roads and smeared windshields while the rest of the area gets drenched.

Some odd – but not extreme – weather patterns are wandering through The Woodlands

While this might feel like a wacky weekly weather wonder, it’s interesting to note that this is the longest number of days in an annual ‘storm season’ since the 1940s where there have been no named storms formed in the oceans. So, while the weather may feel obnoxious, dank, and sweltering, it’s by no means extreme.

That being said, let’s delve into what we can expect for the Labor Day weekend. Today will be the only day this entire long weekend where the high temps will reach 90; unfortunately, though the ‘raw’ temps for the rest of the predictable future will stay in the 80s, the rains and humidity will oftentimes make it feel like we’re firmly in the summer 90s, even if we barely catch a glimpse of the sun all weekend.

Afternoon thunderstorms will get the ball rolling, with a couple of spikes around lunchtime and quitting time. This – combined with travelers’ desires to get out of town for the weekend – will make the commute home especially treacherous, so be sure to drive carefully and defensively on the way home.Storms may abate but clouds will remain overnight as we settle into the mid 70s.

Saturday will dawn dark and dreary with near-complete cloud cover that will hang around all weekend long (and easily well into next week). We’ll hit our high of only 84 right around lunchtime, when the temps will suddenly drop as the rains return; accompanying wind spikes won’t help matters. The Saturday-into-Sunday low will only be 71, so maybe you can give your nighttime air conditioning bill a break.

On Sunday, while the clouds will remain in full force, the rains will be more sporadic as we hit a high of only 83. The best chance of rain will be between midmorning and early afternoon, then things should settle down, precipitation wise.

Labor Day Monday will be a basic repeat: scattered storms during the day as we hit a high in the mid 90s. Assuming nothing is canceled, it should make for a cooler evening with interesting optics for the Woodlands Township’s Labor Day Fireworks, which Woodlands Online will be covering live on social media.

As most of us slog back to work on Tuesday, you can expect a short-week’s worth of the same… assuming that the patterns once again change on us in the meantime. The only predictable about Woodlands Weather lately is its unpredictability.
