Two clusters of thunderstorms developed this afternoon south of Houston—one near Sugar Land and the other Friendswood. These storms have produced isolated areas of 1 to 2 inches of rain and some reports of hail.
A larger area of storms associated with a boundary is moving from the northeast toward the Houston metro area. Some of the forecast models have indicated these storms will weaken as they approach Houston, but if anything they seem to be strengthening a little. If they hold together these storms will bring a good chance of rain to much of the area, especially east of downtown, beginning at around 7pm. Strong winds are also a threat.
Decent to good chances of rain will hang around on Sunday, and as a result of the clouds and moisture I’m hopeful that high temperatures will remain at or below 90 degrees.
Some rain chances will linger on Monday and Tuesday before Houston dives back into the deep heat by Wednesday or so.
