There is a 30% chance of rain in Houston on Wednesday, with afternoon thunderstorms and showers likely. Cloud cover and rain will both result in afternoon temperatures being lower by three to five degrees.
Afternoon storms are also expected Thursday and Friday afternoon, but rain less likely than on Wednesday, due to higher air pressure rising across the state, towards the end of the week.
Weekend Temps Rise
As the likelihood of storms and rain subside, expect temperatures to rise slightly to around 100 degree maximums over the weekend. This is expected to feel more oppressive as the humidity combines with the heat.
North of Houston, the Mid-Mississippi Valley can expect to see the heat index rising to around 110 degrees, causing widespread heat waves and heat alerts.
Looking forward to next week, expect temperatures to again drop by 4 to 5 degrees, with increased cloud cover, possible showers and afternoon storms.
