HOUSTON – Showers south of Interstate 10 early Thursday morning made it further inland later in the day, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
There was a 40-percent chance of rain Thursday with a forecast high of 88 degrees.
“We have warm moist air heading in out of the Gulf, and we’re also tracking a cold front to our north,” said Johnson. “Both of these combined will increase our chance for showers over the next couple of days.”
Some isolated storms could be severe with heavy rain and wind.
Heading into the weekend, the chance for rain increases to 60-percent with a high temperature of 89 degrees on Friday. The rain chances will dwindle down by the start of the work week.
Meanwhile in the Atlantic, we’re tracking Tropical Storm Nadine. As of Thursday morning, the winds were at 70 miles per hour, and it was expected to strengthen to hurricane status possibly by the end of the day. The good news is the storm will hook to the east and not impact the U.S.
