Rain chances increase Friday as an upper level disturbance moves in. Showers and thunderstorms are likely, mainly after 1pm. Chance of precipitation is 60% with a low chance of flooding. Due to the rainfall temperatures won’t be as hot, with highs in the lower and mid-90s.
We have a low flood risk south and east of Houston. Street flooding is possible in these areas. The places not in green could get a trace of rain to a half inch today.
While not a wash out, more rain is expected Saturday. Sunday has a chance too.
With Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s high of 101 degrees we are now in 4th place for the most 100 degree days in a year. Records go back to 1889.
There are a few days next week where will climb to near 100 degrees.
NOAA and CSU updated their tropical forecast on Thursday and both groups still expect an above average season. The presence of La Nina, weaker Atlantic trade winds, an active west African monsoon and a strong Bermuda high helped the forecasters determine the numbers being above average. The total number of named storms and major hurricanes has decreased by one from NOAA due to some variability in the Sea Surface Temperatures across the Atlantic. No tropical development is expected in the Atlantic in the next five days. Make sure you’re prepared for the rest of our hurricane season by getting our Hurricane Tracker App.[ad_2]
