Friday and into the weekend will be a continuation of the hot, humid forecast we’ve seen through the week so far. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s, but “feels like” temperatures will be well over 100 degrees. We are not under a Heat Advisory but one could be issued for later this afternoon.
There is a chance to see an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm later this afternoon as plenty of moisture continues to pump into the region from the Gulf. Most storms will fire up through late afternoon, settling down later this evening.
A weak cold front will nose into north Texas this weekend but should fall apart before it makes it to the greater Houston area. However, it will likely beef up our rain chances for Sunday afternoon. Not a washout but keep an eye to the sky as we could see a more widespread coverage for much of the afternoon. Plenty of heat with highs again back into the mid 90s.
Tropical Depression Fred:
The Atlantic Basin is heating up! Tropical Depression FRED is on the move over the eastern edge of Cuba today and eventually toward Florida by early Saturday. Fred will bring heavy rain across much of Florida this weekend.
Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven:
PTC #7, which will soon become Tropical Storm Grace, has formed in the Atlantic and is looking to take a very similar track to Fred through the Caribbean and potentially towards The Bahamas and possibly Florida by late week. Neither storm appears to be a threat to the Texas coastline at this time.
