Severe Thunderstorm Watch canceled for Southeast Texas

HOUSTON – A line of strong storms moved through the Houston region Thursday afternoon.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was canceled around 9:20 p.m. Thursday.

Dry and increasingly hot and humid conditions persisted from mid-morning through mid-afternoon before another batch of showers and storms moved into Houston from the west.

The afternoon storms moved through between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and were stronger than the morning showers. These storms had the potential to produce damaging wind and small hail. However, the greatest threat of severe weather was south of Houston.

High temperatures reached the mid-90s with a northwest wind between five and 10 miles per hour.

Friday should remain mostly dry with the exception of an afternoon sea breeze shower and the weekend ahead will be our hottest yet with highs of 96 and 98 degrees Saturday and Sunday. Feels Like temperatures will reach 105F.

A “cold” front Monday will actually make it through and shift our winds to the north. So while we will only cool a little bit, the air will be much crisper with lower humidity and next week will feel great!
