THE WOODLANDS, TX – It’s a misnomer to use the mnemonic ‘Spring Forward, Fall Back’ when it comes to resetting our clocks this weekend for Daylight Saving Time, as we’re still two weeks away from the end of winter. You wouldn’t know it from the temperatures coming our way this weekend, though. In any event, though you’ll be an hour short this weekend, you have some more sunlight in the later hours to enjoy a relatively calm weekend.

Daylight Saving Time rears its head this weekend

Though the streets were still wet from the late night and early morning rains, our cloudy skies will part as the day progresses and the sun will peek out. The day will be an active one, weather wise: the dew point and humidity will both drop significantly, while the winds kick up and the pressure soars. Later this afternoon we have the smallest chance of a few more sprinkles, but that will be the last hurrah of precipitation for the weekend. Though the thermometer will stay at around 79 for a high, we’ll actually have a heat index to make it feel closer to 83. Speaking of the ‘80s, tonight’s a great night to catch The Spicolis at Flashback Friday at Sawyer Park Icehouse. It won’t be until close to sundown before the mercury starts to drop, and by early tomorrow morning we’ll be down to a low of 51.

On Saturday, the winds will continue to mount, adding to the much chillier day that will only have a high in the mid 60s. The clouds will hang around, greying things up a bit, and by early afternoon the temps will start dropping again, right around the same time the winds will finally stop gusting around 15 mph and settle down. This makes it perfect weather to head out to Northshore Park for the Township’s Arts in the Park. The temperature will quickly drop into the mid 40s for a low.

Sunday morning will be as grey as ever as the clouds return and the temperatures barely crawl back into the upper 60s for a high. Later in the day, the ever-dropping humidity will finally turn around and start inching back up again, as will the dew point. The pressure will top out at about 30.2 inches and then start a slow, week-long drop. Despite the clouds, there isn’t any rain in the forecast. Keep enjoying the outdoorsy weather by heading to the Shadowbend YMCA for a Car Show With a Cause; you’ll be glad you did.

As next work week starts, it’ll be warm and dry enough, but those might be some significant storm clouds brewing for next weekend…
