WOODLANDS WEEKEND WEATHER & EVENTS – September 22 - 24, 2023 – Can you feel the heat tonight?
THE WOODLANDS, TX – We may be out of the 100s for our highs, but the thermometer is fighting the drop with all its might, leaving us with another week or so of weather that’s just a tad too unseasonably warm. True, there is a general cooling trend, but we’ll get some spikes of heat that might encourage you to enjoy the outdoors before the inevitable winter freeze hits us in the months ahead.
Early this afternoon, the winds will kick up and we’ll most likely get a spate of isolated thunder showers. Nothing too radical, but sure to up the heat factor a few degrees above our natural high of 96. By the evening, the rains should have all gone away while some clouds remain and the thermometer drops rapidly into the 80s and 70s. Friday Night Lights is in full swing, including the powerhouse matchup between Willis and Oak Ridge. If you don’t feel like schlepping out to Woodforest Stadium, tune in at 7 p.m. to our own livestream broadcast of the game, bringing you all the action.
Saturday will be a degree warmer under mostly sunny skies, with some cooling breezes doing what they can to ease the heat. Some cloud coverage will spike in the mid afternoon, perfect timing for you to enjoy the Montgomery County Renaissance Faire at Rob Fleming Park. The humidity and cloud coverage will work together to make for a muggy overnight – staying in the 80s through midnight – so if you’ve gone the past few nights without AC, you may want to crank them back on.
Sunday will be the warmest day of the weekend yet, getting all the way up to 99 and a heat index that will definitely make you sweat if you’re outdoors. Once again we’ll be under mostly sunny skies, but enough cloud coverage will blot the sun out from time to time, and a front moving in will cool us down to the mid 70s for our overnight low. Because of the iffy weather tonight, it’s perfect to head to Dosey Doe - The Big Barn to catch Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Steve Wariner – who’s worked with Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Chet Atkins – on their stage.
Come Monday, however, prepare for a stormy turn of the tables…
