Another round of storms will move through Friday. It will be important to watch areas that flooded Thursday as additional rainfall could cause an isolated concern. For most Friday will be a grey day with scattered storms and Saharan dust.

Drier weather is expected to arrive this weekend. Only stray afternoon showers and storms are expected.

Extended forecast

Saharan dust is blanketing Southeast Texas as we head into the weekend. It will create a haze in the air and could create spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It may also cause respiratory problems for people sensitive to irritants in the air. And, because Saharan dust is very dry, it is one of the reasons why our rain chances are diminished this weekend.
