WOODLANDS WEEKEND WEATHER – May 12 - 14, 2023 – Mama Mia, that’s some stormy weather
THE WOODLANDS, TX – We actually broke the 90-degree barrier this week, causing some of us to fear an early start to summer. This weekend, however, it’s more of an “If April showers bring May flowers, then May thunder brings humid summer.”
On-again, off-again thunderstorms will dominate Mother’s Day Weekend
(Admittedly, we’re a weather team, not a group of slam poets.)
As our Friday progresses, the clouds will wander away for a bit, but right around dinnertime the dropping pressure front will turn around, and with an increase in pressure will come an increase in clouds and chances of thunderstorms. Before that, our high of 89 will feel like 95 thanks to the humidity in the air. Take advantage of the relatively mild weather this evening by grabbing the kiddos and heading over to TreeVentures for their Lights, Heights, & Bites event. By midnight tonight, we’ll have once again a fully clouded sky as our low manages to make it down to 71.
Saturday early morning will see a spike in our chances of isolated thunderstorms. The clouds will continue to blanket the sky, helping to cause the temps to soar up to another “80s in reality, but feels like mid 90s” day. But despite the rain chances, you should still get several breaks in the weather to get some outdoor activity in, but beware some gusting winds out of the southeast. Something tells us that, no matter what the weather, if you’re a rock fan, you’ll be jamming it at BuzzFest featuring Godsmack at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion come rain or shine. Our overnight low will manage to make it back down to 71.
On Sunday, Mother’s Day will spend most of the morning under massive grey clouds and rain alerts. It’s currently a statistical coin toss that you’ll experience a scattered thunderstorm or two. The conversion of humidity to rain will make the heat index only rise a couple of degrees over the ‘raw’ high of 87. As the day progresses, the chances of rain and the coverage of cloud will both diminish, and the rising pressure will help bring the low down to 68. Whether you celebrate or commemorate the day, we have a full list of things you can do and places you can go for Mother’s Day; check out our guide!
Even though Sunday might end up relatively dry, don’t put away those umbrellas quite yet, because next week promises a lot more of the wet stuff…
