HOUSTON — We are starting off Thursday under another Air Quality Alert as we end the week on a mostly dry note.

Thursday and Friday will both be beautiful early June days here in Southeast Texas. 

Temperatures warming to around 90, right in line with the average for this time of the year. High pressure becoming more dominant therefore rain chances will be slim to none.

This weekend our risk for afternoon storms does look to increase. In particular, the rain chances on Sunday will be greater thanks to embedded pieces of energy pivoting through the area. These will act as focal points for lift and storm development. We carry a similar storm/rain risk right into the middle of next week.

There is an area of disturbed weather in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.

An area of low pressure has already formed and the forecast calls for low chances of tropical development as it slowly builds south parallel to the west coast of Florida.

Wind shear is in play with this system. Most if not all of the convective aspects of this storm are being displaced to the northeast of the center due to moderate southwesterly wind shear. The overall shear environment may become less hostile in the next 48 hours therefore low chances (20%) for development into a named storm.
