HOUSTON — Runners and spectators can expect perfect weather for Sunday’s Chevron Houston Marathon, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez said.

For the start of Sunday’s big event in the morning, the weather will be cool, dry as a cold front out of the north pushes out any humidity and moisture from the Houston area. That is a big difference from last year’s event, which was held in cold, wet weather.

Temps will start off in the upper-40s for the beginning of the run before warming up to the upper-60s in the afternoon, making for a sunny, mild day.

Next week the cloud coverage increases slightly as afternoon high temperatures top out in the mid-70s Monday. Tuesday the daytime temperatures drop back into the 60s.
