WOODLANDS WEEKEND WEATHER & EVENTS – August 25 - 27, 2023 – Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Week in and week out, weekday and weekend, it’s been pretty much the same story; blazingly sunny and crushingly hot, with pavement you can bake a cake on and grass that crunches under your feet. Barring an apocalyptic solar flare, however, know that there’s relief coming sooner or later. And this weekend just might be the prologue to cooler and happier days.
Around mid-afternoon today, we’ll hit our high of 104, with a heat index making it feel like 112, which sadly has been par for the course these past few weeks. But right around the same time – miraculously – several clouds will come rolling in as the humidity takes a dive and the winds kick into high gear, going from zero to 10 mph in a matter of hours. And, though it’s only a small chance of about 15 percent, there is a chance of rain for the rest of the afternoon and most of the night. This would be a perfect opportunity to hit Donna’s Home Furnishings to take advantage of its indoor/outdoor furniture sale. Though we’ll stay in the 100s through the 90s until at least midnight, we’ll hit our ‘overnight’ low of 78 just before Saturday’s sunrise.
On Saturday, rising pressure, humidity, and dew point will bring out the morning sun again, but a pre-lunch drop in humidity and pressure will keep the heat index in check and it will only feel about five degrees warmer than our afternoon high of 102. There may be a spate of clouds from time to time, but the wet stuff of Friday will most likely be a happy memory. If you want to take the moment to give a little something back, think about attending The Walk, the annual gala for Interfaith of The Woodlands.
Sunday will start off as a repeat of the day before, with rising humidity augmenting the sweltering heat. But come lunchtime the humidity and pressure will go into a freefall, and the clouds will make a return engagement. We’ll still feel the heat with the warmest day of the weekend yet – 106 degrees without the heat index – but moderate winds will help cool our brow until the chances of rain make a comeback. If you’re feeling lucky, grab a personal fan and an umbrella and hit The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion for The Australian Pink Floyd Show, one of the finest tribute bands ever.
The chances of rain will increase significantly over the next couple of days, with some relief in the form of thunderstorms and about 48 hours of temperatures that don’t get out of the double digits…
