HOUSTON -- Thursday will be another hot day in Houston, KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul said.

”I am sure the rain chances will be slim to none on Thursday,” Paul said.

We’ll see highs in the mid-90s and lows in the mid-70s. On Thursday the slight chance for scattered sprinkles continues along with the hotter temperatures.

There’s a better chance for rain this weekend because of some activity that may cross into the Gulf.

There will be a lot of uncertainty between now and next week as a tropical system is now in the developing stages. If it does turn into something, we could get some rain by early to mid- next week.

Friday and Saturday the skies will be mostly clear with daytime temps also in the mid-90s.

By late Sunday, we could start to receive some heavy downpours from a tropical disturbance expected to enter the Gulf later this week. Rain chances between 30 and 40 percent will last until about Wednesday.

Looking to the Atlantic, we’re watching Hurricane Humberto. The tropical storm became a hurricane early Wednesday morning. It’s of no threat to the U.S. We’re also watching Tropical Storm Gabrielle. It also will not affect the U.S.
