HOUSTON – There’s another chance for scattered showers in the Houston area on what will be a warm and muggy Wednesday, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

“It will be closer to this afternoon that we could pick up a few scattered showers, but we’re not expecting as much accumulation today as what we saw yesterday,” said Johnson. “It should be pretty spotty.”

There’s a 40-percent chance for rain Wednesday with a forecast high of 88 degrees.

Thursday the rain chance drops to 20 percent before going away entirely for the start of the weekend.

On Saturday a chance for rain returns as a cool front pushes through, leaving us with a pleasant (and cooler) start to the week with early-morning temperatures in the upper-50s.

We’re keeping an eye on two tropical systems: Tropical Storm Jerry is moving northeast in the Atlantic and will not affect the U.S., and closer to home in the western Caribbean we’re watching a disturbance that has a medium chance of forming. It could bring heavy rain to the Gulf coast next week.
