HOUSTON -- It will be hot, humid, and sunny in Southeast Texas before a chance for storms returns later this week, according to KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

On Tuesday, temps will kick off in the upper-70s with a forecast high of 94 degrees.

“I don’t expect to see rain showers Tuesday,” said Paul. “It’s just going to be hot.”

By Wednesday a slight rain chance returns all the way through the weekend.

Tropical Depression #1 has formed off the east coast of Florida. Forecast track from the National Hurrican Center keeps it as an 'east coast' storm. The storm is forecast to strengthen and become 'Arthur' later on Tuesday.

Looking to your July 4th forecast and as we head into this upcoming weekend, count on about a 40-percent chance for a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Most of that should settle down by sunset, just in time for the fireworks shows.

There's a 40-percent chance for rain on Saturday as well.

Our daytime temps will remain in the low- to mid-90s for the next several days with overnight lows in the mid-70s.
