HOUSTON — Heat and humidity continue to stick around this week, but rain chances will also increase with the possibility of a storm forming in the Gulf as we head into the weekend (read more about that, click here).
In the meantime, it will remain hot. ERCOT has asked everyone to help conserve electricity all so the electric providers can continue to meet the demand.
After an evening of lightning and storms across the Houston area on Tuesday, we are looking at a continuing chance of scattered rain and storms through Wednesday evening.

Our rain and storm chances this week are coming from little spokes of energy, pinwheeling around the very large and early season high-pressure ridge that is covering a large chunk of the country. It stretches from the West Coast to Montana and down to the Texas/Louisiana area. In terms of temperatures, we'll see highs in the mid to upper 90s.
Our average high is 92 and we're looking to be at or above that all week long. Also, our average morning low is 74, and we will stay well above that this week. With our air not having a chance to cool down overnight, each day will start off warm and only go up from there.
Tropics update: possible Gulf development
We're still keeping an eye on that disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico, which now has a 90 percent chance of development in the next two to five days.
