Memorial Day weekend is a popular time for Texans to hit the beaches for some much-needed fun in the sun. With it now being Friday, the celebration of a three-day weekend has officially begun, and Houston beaches are getting crowded with people. Despite the forecast not looking the brightest this year, beaches, especially in Houston, are still seeing business.

If you're planning on visiting a beach this weekend to celebrate Memorial Day, you may be greeted by a large number of other beachgoers.

According to the Weather Channel, Houston's skies are expected to be cloudy, producing thunderstorms all weekend and into Memorial Day.

Taking a look at numerous beach cams of different Galveston beaches, for now, the skies are experiencing lots of gloom.

Despite this being the case, the live streams also show large numbers of people and lines of cars parked along the beach sidewalk.

Several other Texas beach webcams show what their views look like as of today. Some are more crowded than others, but the weather appears consistent overall.

This Memorial Day weekend may end up seeing similar crowds to Jeep Weekend, which took place last weekend on Crystal Beach. 

Before last weekend had even begun, vehicle access to nearby Galveston beaches was cut off to limit crowding.

Above is a screenshot from Babe's Beach Cam that shows the view along Seawall this afternoon. The image depicts numerous cars as well as people on the beach in Galveston.

Though the weather is gloomy, visitors are still steadily flowing in.

You can see a screenshot of the South Beach Webcam from La Copa Inn Beach Hotel on South Padre Island above, which shows many people laying out under umbrellas.

While it may not be raining on beachgoers yet, at least they'll be somewhat protected from the showers by their umbrellas when it begins.
