HOUSTON -- Some parts of town will get a good soaking leading up to today’s July 4th festivities, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.
“We could be looking at a washout – but only in your daylight hours – not for your fireworks,” said Garner. “The best chance for rain will be between 1 and 5 p.m. today. It won’t last the whole day, and not everybody is going to get the rain.”
There’s a 50-percent chance for rain Friday with a forecast high of 92 degrees.
A slight rain chance lingers through the weekend and into next week with daytime temps in the low- to mid-90s and overnight lows in the mid- to upper-70s.
Looking to the tropics, Hurricane Arthur is making its way up the U.S. East Coast after making landfall overnight in North Carolina. It dropped several inches of rain before moving back to sea. It’s expected to get close to New York but will not make landfall again.
