HOUSTON – As the rain slacks up a little bit, the heat index is spiking, KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman said.

“There may be some possible isolated showers, but of more concern is the heat index, which will top 100 degrees in many neighborhoods,” he said of areas north of town.

Things will be slightly less intense in areas to the south, where temperatures will be in the upper 90s.  

“We may not start the day with those coastal showers that move their way inland, we may see more isolated storms develop in the afternoon,” he said.  

The seven-day forecast shows temperatures will increase as rain chances drop.  

The heat index will be something we are watching for the next couple of days, Norman said.
