What you need to know about this weekend's severe weather risk

HOUSTON – After a nice end to the work week, severe storms are back in the forecast on Saturday.

It’s a good idea to have Frank’s Forecast app on your phone, so you can get severe weather alerts on the go and track the storms on the interactive radar.

Here’s a look at what you need to know about the weekend weather.

Friday Night

Humidity levels will be high, so temperatures are not going to cool down much Friday night.  Temperatures will drop into the mid-70s overnight under partly cloudy skies.  Do not expect any showers Friday evening, but we could pick up a few streamer showers coming off the Gulf Saturday morning, ahead of the main weather event Saturday afternoon and evening.


Saturday morning will start off on the breezy and humid side as a front begins to approach the region.
Between 2 and 9 p.m., strong storms are expected to roll through the region. The worst of the weather is expected to be along and north of Interstate 10. 


The primary threats with any storms that develop will be quarter-sized hail, winds of 40 to 50 mph and isolated tornadoes. Widespread flooding is not expected, but localized street and feeder road flooding is possible.



The threat of severe weather will be gone but scattered showers are still possible. Expect mostly cloudy skies with warm and humid weather.

Next week

Summerlike heat is on the way beginning Monday, with high humidity and temperatures in the 90s.
