Some storms may spread across Houston this evening

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.

Will these storms hold together as they reach Houston? Probably at least for the eastern side of the metro area. (Intellicast)

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.

    Pearland got a good 45 minutes of solid rain and heavy lightning and thunder around 430. Was not expecting that today

    Was actually drizzling inside Minute Maid this afternoon when the clouds rolled in and cooled the hot roof. Then some rain fell and cooled it further. Viola – indoor weather!

    Miserably hot in the upper deck in the mid innings. The Astros don’t seem to understand what air conditioning is.
