HOUSTON –- The Houston area will remain warm and muggy on Friday as the chance for scattered showers gradually disappears until a cool front moves through this weekend, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner said.

There's a 30-percent chance for rain today with a forecast high of 90 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday the chance for rain jumps as a cool front moves through. There is a possibility for thunderstorms Saturday afternoon with a 40 percent chance of rain.

The cool front will leave us with early-morning temperatures Sunday in the upper-50s and daytime highs in the low-80s.

We’re keeping an eye on two tropical systems: Tropical Storm Karen formed early Thursday in the Gulf of Mexico. It's not expected to impact Texas, but over the weekend it could make landfall anywhere from Louisiana to Florida. It will be a big rain maker in Louisiana and eastward.

Also, Tropical Depression Jerry continues to move northeast in the Atlantic. It is weakening and will not affect the U.S.
