HOUSTON –- The Houston area will remain warm and muggy on Thursday evening as the chance for scattered showers disappears until a cool front moves through this weekend.

The 30-percent chance for rain on Thursday will dissipate after sunset, and temps will be in the low-70s overnight.

Friday will also be warm with a slight chance for rain.

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.

“It will be a huge change compared to what we had around these parts for the last five months,” said KHOU 11 news Meteorologist Brooks Garner.

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.

Also, Tropical Depression Jerry continues to move northeast in the Atlantic. It is weakening and will not affect the U.S.
