Enjoy Friday. Sure, there may be issues with fog early and at night, but much of the day should be of the "partly cloudy and mild" variety. Because once we enter the weekend, that phrase "it's all downhill from here" comes to mind....
As it stands now, we may have about six straight days of ugly weather to deal with before the sun re-appears in the Houston sky for any length of time. A broad and complex disturbance entering the Great Basin will eject two or three mesoscale shortwaves eastward into Texas between now and Wednesday. Every time an impulse approaches, a wave of low pressure will form in the western Gulf of Mexico along a stationary front. The front itself will be the catalyst for string thunderstorms later Saturday into Sunday. Then, with overrunning setting up in the cool air, each piece of energy at 500MB will be associated with rain, and perhaps some thunder. This is the routine the Bayou City will find itself involved with through Wednesday.
The main storm complex (blocked initially by a subtropical high over Florida and Cuba) rolls through Wednesday night and Thursday. There is still major disagreement among the numerical models about how Texas and the rest of the Old South (and East Coast) will be affected by this feature. But mostly I side with the European model idea of a track just to our north, somewhat of a mimic for the disturbance which affected us Tuesday and Wednesday. That entails more heavy rain and thunderstorms. With any luck, the following weekend should be of the "cool and dry" variety in the Lone Star State.
