HOUSTON – There’s a chance for scattered showers this weekend, but you shouldn’t let that affect your outdoor plans, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

“We’re tracking storms just to the north-northeast,” said Gomez. “Most of these showers will probably harmlessly drift off to the east, but they’re going to pull down a cool front that will weaken by the time it gets to Houston. It could touch off a few showers late Saturday, but by Sunday it will be completely gone leaving us with only isolated showers.”

Expect to see overnight temperatures in the mid-70s with a 30 percent on Saturday as the weekend gets under way. By next week our daytime temperatures will be back in the mid-90s, still under mostly sunny skies.

Looking to the Atlantic, a very disorganized Tropical Storm Dorian continues to move northwest at 21 mph. It has maximum sustained winds at 50 mph. The current models show it just east of Cuba by Wednesday. It’s then expected to make an easterly turn, so it’s not yet known if it will affect the U.S. at all.
