WOODLANDS WEEKEND WEATHER & EVENTS – September 8 - 10, 2023 – It’s all downhill from there
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Can it be? Possibly! It looks like today just might be the final day of high temperatures in the 100s. For weeks – if not months – we’ve been keeping our fingers crossed, and it looks like our fervent wishing might just be paying off. Lower temps, clouds, and maybe even some storms but literally be on the horizon. But, as they say, sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for…
Earlier today, our humidity levels were at near-total, so later this afternoon when we hit our high of 105, the heat index will make it feel like 112. Clouds and winds will kick up throughout the afternoon and evening, and there’s a quarter-chance of rain for the next several hours. Don’t risk getting wet outdoors; instead head over to Dosey Doe - The Big Barn to catch the venerable The Bellamy Brothers.
Though our ‘overnight’ low – in reality hitting early tomorrow morning – will be 77, we won’t get out of feeling like it’s the 80s all night. But all throughout Saturday we’ll definitely experience a shift in the winds – literally – and the clouds will darken and we enter a moderate chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Maybe you’ll want to take the change in seasons as a sign to prepare for the future; check out Waffles & Wills in The Woodlands at the Weygandt Law Firm, where you can enjoy some breakfast as you learn about estate planning. Once again, the heat index will make things feel warmer than they are; though the afternoon high won’t get over 97, it’ll still feel like 104. However, the winds, clouds and rains – which will stick around for a few hours – will work together to help get the overnight low down to 75.
On Sunday, with the humidity having converted to rain the day before, our heat index will be near-nonexistent, and our high of 99 will feel like it and no warmer. With this temperate weather, grab your blankets and family and check out Concert in the Park at Northshore Park. All day we’ll have partly cloudy skies and moderate winds, but this day seems to be the turning point: starting Monday, we’ll begin a general cooling trend, with lots more moisture in the air and precipitation on the ground, that will hopefully see the end of the centennials on the thermometers.
