General Discussion: Today and Friday will both feature plenty of sunshine, low humidity, normal to above-normal temperatures, and dry weather. The humidity will begin to return on Saturday – and will remain in-place through all of next week. This means the overnight temperatures and morning lows will trend well above-normal. The weather pattern shows above-normal temperatures this weekend through next week. However, most days will have some rain impacts regionally. Where it doesn’t rain, expect very warm, humid conditions this weekend through next week. For this weekend, the vast majority of ERCOT will remain dry; however, there could be some isolated showers and thunderstorms in North Texas. Next week, showers and thunderstorms will be most common in North and West Texas. Chances for rain on at least a couple of days in Central Texas. Lowest chances will be Coast and South.
Today: Clouds diminishing over North and East Texas and along the Coast. Sunshine already in place across the rest of the state. Humidity levels much more comfortable today, but with a general northwest wind flow across the state (combined with the low humidity and sunshine), temperatures will push above-normal for most locations. Mid-to-upper 80s common (a bit cooler North and warmer South). Comfortably cool tonight.
Tomorrow: Plenty of sunshine and low humidity. Wind direction will be more northeasterly on Friday, resulting in slightly cooler afternoon temperatures compared to today. Right around normal for late-April.
