HOUSTON –- Winds will slowly start to increase throughout the day today, but it will still be hot this afternoon with very little chance for rain, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
Early this morning, our temperatures were in the upper-70s and low-80s across the area. Humidity made it feel even warmer than that, however.
Tuesday afternoon we’ll top out around 96 degrees with a 10-percent chance for rain.
The rain chance goes away for the rest of this week as temperatures climb even higher.
“High pressure is building, and we’ll be nearing triple digit temperatures this weekend for the first time this year,” said Johnson. “Until then, it’ll be hot, but we’re keeping the double digits in play in the forecast.”
On Sunday and Monday a chance for scattered showers returns.
Looking to the Tropics, things remain calm with no disturbances for the foreseeable future.
