The last weekend of the rodeo has also arrived and the weather could become a little stormy Saturday. Although moisture levels are lacking, a narrow line of thunderstorms will move through the Houston metro area Saturday around midday. Areas North of the city could see over an inch of rain as the squall line drifts through with the city seeing up to half inch. The weather for the weekend is probably at its best this evening with fair weather and temperature readings in the 60s.

As the front arrives in town Saturday afternoon look for cool wind whipped rain to move out of the area Saturday evening with highs only in the mid to upper 60s during the day. Spring break beach weather also looks very wet and windy Saturday afternoon with a gale watch up along the coastal waters from Saturday 6pm to Sunday mid morning. Strong Northerly winds will reach 25-30 knots with small craft advisories very likely Saturday and Sunday. Galveston readings are expected to top out near 70 Saturday with temperatures dropping into the upper 50s by Sunday. A winter storm warning is up for the Texas panhandle for snow accumulations of up to 2" - 4". Strong North winds will cause blowing and drifting snow in the panhandle and North-central region most of the day Saturday.

If your planning to attend the rodeo events tonight the weather continues to be wonderful with fair skies and pleasant temperatures. The weather goes downhill from here though with cold blustery winds pulling the temperatures into the mid to upper 30s by Sunday morning with highs only upper 50s for the metro Houston area.
