HOUSTON – The chance for rain is dwindling down Thursday as it starts to feel more like summer outside, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist David Paul said.

“We’re going to have a couple thunderstorms each afternoon,” said Paul. “There’s a 20-percent chance for thunderstorms, and temps will be in the mid-to low-90s.”

The extended rain chance through the weekend into next week is only 20-percent or less.

As the rain slacks up, the heat index is spiking. While there will be a chance for isolated heavy downpours, more of a concern is the heat. Some neighborhoods could see temps reaching 100 degrees.

Things will be slightly less intense in areas to the south.
