HOUSTON – The Houston area will experience rain showers on Friday and heavy rains in various areas, according to KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

“We could see 4, 5, or 6 inches of rain in some spots,” Paul said. “Street flooding is possible.”

There’s an 80-percent chance for rain on Friday and temps will top off at 86 degrees.

“Take an umbrella,” Paul said

The rain chance drops to 60-percent chance on Saturday, and on Sunday the rain chance drops down to 20-percent.

Daytime highs over the weekend are expected to only reach the mid-80s with overnight lows in the upper-60s as the skies clear out early next week.

Looking to the tropics, we’re watching a low pressure system in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center says it has a 70-percent chance of developing further over the next day or two. It will either turn eastward or westward. If it goes west, it’ll soak Mexico yet again and bring the Houston area good rainfall as well. If it goes east, however, it’ll head to Florida and southeast Texas won’t receive much rain from it.
