Whatever you have planned for the weekend, be prepared for some rain. As usual, the timing is a little tricky because the factors causing the wet weather are coming from two different directions. It won't be a washout by any means, but showers will drift in off the Gulf Saturday morning and scatter around southeast Texas. At the same time, late Saturday night and into Sunday morning, a cool front will push in from North Texas. The front should keep the second half of the weekend rather cloudy and depending on how quickly it moves in, steadier and more widespread rain might occur early. The challenge with the forecast is that the front may take most of the day to move through, so rain showers may still be around during Sunday afternoon. It is even possible that the clouds and showers could linger into Monday, but skies brighten and cooler weather prevails at the polls Tuesday.
So here's what to expect for some events around town. In Galveston, hogs (motorcycles, actually) roar as the Lone Star Rally continues. Sunday could be soggier, so pack the rain gear:
Tailgaters should also be prepared for some rain during the Texans game vs the Bills at Reliant. The threat of rain may keep the roof closed again. It will be mainly cloudy and since the wind should shift from south to north during the day, it shouldn't be as muggy by the end of the game. Remember, you can catch all the action from the comfort of your couch on KHOU 11:
If you still have a hankering to go back to the 15th century, the Renaissance Festival continues in Plantersville. By the way, this weekend it the Roman Bacchanal so sport your best toga. If you go Sunday, you may need to bring a poncho as well:
I hope you have a great weekend whatever the weather!
