HOUSTON –- A meteor shower sighting is possible late Friday night as we prepare for a great holiday weekend in the Houston area, according to KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

The May Camelopardalid may put on a never-before-seen spectacle late Friday night, according to NASA.

"This is the first time the Earth will go through this particular meteor shower so we don't know how it's going to play out," said Paul.

You will want to look toward the northern sky, and it peaks between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. There could be between 200 to 1000 meteors per hour.

While it will be warm and muggy, there will be plenty of sunshine with only a very slight chance for scattered rain -- mainly to the northwest of the city.

Saturday and Sunday will be wam and muggy with only a very slight chance for scattered rain -- mainly to the northwest of the city. As we head into early next week more clouds enter the forecast.

There’s a 20- to 30-percent chance for rain Monday and Tuesday and a 40-percent chance on Wednesday.

Even if you catch any of the scattered downpours, it’ll remain warm – in the mid-80s -- during the daytime next week.
