HOUSTON — Enjoy the nice cool temps this morning because we will see a fast warm-up this afternoon with temperatures pushing 90 degrees later today.
By Monday you'll really notice the dew points climbing back into the 70s as the muggies return to southeast Texas. Winds will develop a southerly component helping to drive in the moist air off the Gulf of Mexico. That return of humidity will aid in our shower and storm chances increasing Monday afternoon. A piece of energy moving into the region on Tuesday and Wednesday will enhance that risk further.
We transition back into a summer-like pattern here in early fall as temperatures hover in the middle to upper 80s, higher humidity and afternoon storm chances right through Thursday.

Tropical update: No threats to the Gulf coast at this time. Hurricane Sam is in the open Atlantic and is the 18th named system this year. As of Saturday evening Sam has rapidly intensified to a dangerous Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140mph, the good news is that it is no where near any land. A wave in the northern Atlantic organized quickly yesterday and became our 19th named storm of the season, Subtropical Storm Teresa. This will be short lived and not impact any land.
