HOUSTON – More thunderstorms are expected in the Houston area on a very warm and muggy Thursday.

“We’re watching a system to our north as well as a sea breeze,” said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner. “When those boundaries collide mid-morning, that’s when we’ll start to see thunderstorms in the Houston area.”

There’s a 60-percent chance for rain today through the afternoon – we’ll top out in the low-90s.

Friday the rain chance drops to 40-percent and this weekend it goes down to 30-percent.

You’ll want to keep the umbrella handy for the next seven days as there’s a lingering chance for rain next week too.

Overnight lows will be muggy and in the upper-70s.

Hurricane Arthur has formed in the Atlantic off the East Coast of the U.S. The hurricane's maximum sustained winds early Thursday are near 75 mph (120 kph) with some additional strengthening expected. Hurricane warnings on the coast of North Carolina have been extended and now cover an area from Surf City to the Virginia border.
