HOUSTON – Severe thunderstorms rolled through the Greater Houston area Friday evening, but the weekend will be sunny and dry, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.
On Friday, the tropical system brought heavy rains, wind gusts up to 60 mph, lightning and some small hail to Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties, but all cleared up and the sun will shine this weekend.
Saturday morning temperatures kicked off in the upper-60s to lower-70s and highs are expected to top off around 94 degrees.
Highs will remain in the mid-90s on Sunday, but will drop a few degrees at the beginning of next week with a 50-percent chance for rain on Monday and Tuesday.
In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Erin is fluctuating in strength and is not very well organized.
“It is not a big concern for us,” Gomez said. “But right off the Yucatan Peninsula, notice we are beginning to see more and more thunderstorms forming, but these are well to the north/ northeast to the center of circulation.”
That system is what will possibly bring in the rain next week.
