WOODLANDS WEATHER THIS WEEK – June 19 - 23, 2023 – Sizzling things up
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Though we’re still a couple of days away from the official onset of summer, the onslaught of 100-plus degree weather has made the occasion a mere formality.
Protect yourselves this hot-but-stormy week
The good news is, we’ve just now hit our high of 100 – with a heat index making it feel closer to an unbearable 115 – so it’s downhill from here, temperature wise, for the rest of the day and night. The winds that had previously kicked up are also dying down, so it’ll be a while before you actually feel any relief if you’re outdoors. Early this evening, the pressure will bottom out, and as it rises again, some clouds will also start moving in. This airy blanket will keep our overnight low from getting into the 70s, so plan to run your AC units and ceiling fans for most of the night.
By the time you wake up Tuesday morning, there should be some significant cloud coverage and the slightest chances of rain – if we get any, it’ll probably be just enough to smear your windshields and make your hair frizz. It’ll be another day with a high of 100 – maybe even 101 – but other factors will work together to make it ‘only’ feel like 110. Moderate winds and lessening cloud cover will keep things rolling along, and we might actually make it down to a low in the upper 70s.
Wednesday will be a near-copy of the day before; moderate winds, morning clouds and afternoon sun, and a leveled-out pressure system will all work together to hopefully keep the high in the 90s, and we’ll take every degree cooler that we can get. That evening and overnight, we’ll have a slight chance of some precipitation but not enough to drop our low any lower than 78.
On Thursday, we’ll see a lot more dark clouds hanging around and a much more significant chance of thunderstorms, isolated as they may be, with absolutely no chance of flooding, and even the winds will die down so you won’t have to worry so much about falling tree limbs. The best news is, the storms will contrive to get our high only up to 93. As you go to bed that night, the chances of storms will die down, and we’ll spend another overnight in partly cloudy skies with a low in the upper 70s, as if nothing had happened earlier in the day.
We’ll end the work week sl;ightly better than how we started it; more clouds will blanket the sky today, and the steadily rising pressure front, lowered humidity, moderate dew point, and more forgiving humidity will mesh to give us a partly cloudy day with a high of 96 with a heat index only ten degrees higher.
As you prep for the weekend, we at the Woodlands Online Weather Center urge you to stay indoors whenever possible, and to wear sunscreen, wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and loose-fitting, lightweight clothing, and to drink as much water as possible.
Stay tuned on Friday as we bring you Woodlands Weekend Weather.
