Houston Forecast: A brighter & warmer day

With no wet weather to start the day today, we'll see temps rise nicely into the low 90s. Isaias is a tropical storm & will impact Florida today.

HOUSTON — After a drenching of a start to the weekend, where we saw pockets of storms slowly move across Houston for the first half of Saturday, we'll be drying things out today.  We shall turn our attention to a hotter and drier pattern beginning Sunday and lasting nearly all of this upcoming week.

So after a wet stretch, where we saw roughly 2 weeks, from July 17th to August 1st, of scattered showers & storms, we'll see the script being flipped.  While we can't totally rule out a passing shower each day this week, the chances will be small and the weather will be very typical for early August standards. 

Temps this Sunday morning went down into the low to mid 70s.  The average low is 75, so we got a "touch" of some cool relief across town.  But we'll see the warmth build in today and there won't be much in the way of relief from the hot weather. In fact, each day looks about the same. Look for highs in the mid to upper 90s and a small 20% chance of showers daily.

TROPICS

Isaias is a tropical storm and is leaving the northern Bahamas but on the way to impacting Florida today. While it could regain hurricane status as it approaches the Florida East Coast, the conditions there are expected to be the same: rough surf and ocean activity, heavy rain and gusty winds. 

Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for a large stretch of the Florida coast and watches will be added up the East Coast, as the storm progresses northward over the next few days. 

Outside of Isaias, the tropics are fairly tame, for now.
