HOUSTON – Friday morning was the “coolest” morning of the entire week! Higher rain chances are helping cut the heat, somewhat.

You can still expect a hot afternoon in the mid-90s with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits, but thanks to higher storms chances there is NO heat advisory for the first time this week! After the first round of storms Friday morning there will be another round Friday afternoon.

Expect hot and humid weather to continue through the holiday weekend. We will have the best chance for storms on Saturday with only stray showers possible for the remainder of the holiday weekend.

As for the fall front EVERYONE has been talking about this week, there is still a chance. Some models still show the front pushing all the way through but other models are not sold on the idea. It is not a slam dunk yet BUT there is still a chance! If the front clears the coast we are in for a treat! Morning temperatures in the 60s, afternoon temperatures in the low 80s, plus, low humidity. Fingers are crossed!

We finally see a break in the heat next week!

Tracking the tropics

The tropics map looks very colorful and at a quick glance could send someone spiraling. Before anxiety takes over please know there is NO threat to Southeast Texas or the U.S. at this time.

We will watch the tropical waves in the Atlantic as development could occur over the next five days.
