Friday's forecast: Tropical Storm Ingrid forms

HOUSTON - We've got another hot and humid afternoon in store with a high temperature of 96 degrees. 

Our far northern cities have a small, 20 percent, chance of rain from a front nearby.  

On Saturday, the front does not move in, but it's close enough to bring a stray shower. Temperatures will remain in the mid 90s. 

Tropical Storm Ingrid has formed in the Gulf of Mexico near the Mexican coast.

Its maximum sustained winds early Friday are near 45 mph.

Meteorologist Anthony Yanez says depending on the Ingrid's track, Sunday is the day to watch for rain in southeast Texas. If the storm stays on its current path, we'll have some minor coastal flooding from elevated seas. If Ingrid tracks a little farther north, we could see rain Sunday afternoon with a greater flooding threat along the coast line from the higher seas.

The depression is centered about 60 miles east-northeast of Veracruz, Mexico, and is moving west near 2 mph . A tropical storm warning is in effect for Mexico's coast from Coatzacoalcos to Cabo Rojo.

Meanwhile far out over the Atlantic, Humberto has weakened to a tropical storm. Gabrielle has weakened to a tropical depression and remained well off the U.S. East Coast.
