HOUSTON –- The Houston area will remain warm and muggy on Friday as the chance for scattered showers gradually disappears until a cool front moves through this weekend, according to KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.
Friday will be warm with a 10-percent rain chance. Morning temps kick off in the low-70s and are expected to top off at 90 degrees.
Saturday and Sunday the chance for rain jumps as a cool front moves through.
The cool front will leave us with early-morning temperatures Sunday in the upper-50s and daytime highs in the low-80s.
We’re keeping an eye on two tropical systems: Tropical Storm Karen formed early Thursday in the Gulf of Mexico. It's not expected to impact Texas, but over the weekend it could make landfall as a hurricane anywhere from Louisiana to Florida. It will be a big rain maker in Louisiana and eastward.
“Karen is actually having trouble getting organized,” Paul said.
Also, Tropical Depression Jerry continues to move northeast in the Atlantic. It is weakening and will not affect the U.S.
