Houston Weather: Tropical Rains, Humidity First As A Fall Front Is On The Horizon  


Summer-like heat and humidity are likely to be felt as a warm front will be blowing in the Gulf of Mexico. However, it was also spotted that a strong fall front is on the horizon.   

High temperatures making a comeback   

The sticky and humid weather will be making a comeback by sunrise alongside temperatures ranging in the mid-70s. Also, there’s a 20 percent chance that folks will be encountering rain showers during the morning drive, ABC13 reported 

By afternoon, the temperature will pretty much climb to near 90 as the sun will be peeking behind the clouds. Moreover, in the north of Houston, folks down there could probably experience isolated rain showers in the afternoon.  

Rain chances this week  

Moving on to rain chances this week, it will drop to less than 20 percent on Wednesday, but the chances will go up by 40 percent by Thursday. By Friday, there will be a 30 percent chance as moisture is getting tugged from Tropical Storm Pamela that’s still in the Pacific.   

The said weather disturbance is expected to touchdown sometime on Wednesday as a hurricane on the west coast of Mexico, alongside that moisture will be pushed towards land. Significantly cooler and drier weather to the Southeast portion of Texas will be experienced next weekend as a stronger cold front is anticipated to move in by Friday evening. That said, it is expected that it will have a high in the 70s this weekend and lows reaching in the 50s behind the front.  

By mid-October, Texas is usually over with the hurricane season, though the Pacific storm Pamela is being checked upon since it’s likely that it will bring forth flooding rains to some parts of Texas this week.  

Pamela becoming a Category 3 hurricane  

As mentioned, it is expected to landfall as a Category 3 hurricane into the west coast of Mexico by midweek. It will probably bring dangerous storm surges, substantially strong winds, and flash flooding, according to the National Hurricane Center.  

As of 2 p.m. EDT Monday, Pamela has sustained winds of 70 mph and was located about 455 miles south of Mazatlán, Mexico. The storm was forecast to be taking a turn toward the north and northeast as it passes near the tip of the Baja California peninsula in late either late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
