HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A cold front approaching from the northwest will bring a slight chance for a few showers and an isolated thunderstorm for Mother’s Day.The bulk of the rain will remain in our far northern counties along with a slight chance for a few strong to severe thunderstorms to develop. The primary threats will be wind and hail.

On Mother’s Day the rain chance climbs up to 30%, but it looks like we’ll only get a few showers. Stronger thunderstorms developing along a front in North Texas could roll into our northern counties Sunday evening. Summer-like humidity on Sunday morning will keep lows only in the mid 70s and highs near 90. Like Saturday, it will be breezy from the south at 15-25 mph. Some of the thunderstorms that move into our northern counties could turn severe with high winds, hail, and flooding rains. Those storms should weaken and even fizzle before they reach Houston Sunday night.

How long will the rain chance stick around?
We have rain chances in the forecast through Wednesday of next week. An unsettled weather pattern will develop as the front blowing through Texas on Mother’s Day stalls out near I-10 for Monday and Tuesday. Then on Wednesday the front will get another push south into the Gulf, bringing a final wave of showers and thunderstorms before we dry out and enjoy a few more days of lower humidity.

Valorant Breeze update: New Valorant map gameplay reveal date set for April

This post originally appeared on Daily Express :: Entertainment Feed

Valorant has been teasing its new Breeze map this week and has now confirmed when fans will get to see new gameplay.

Not much is known about the new location other than it’s going to be set somewhere tropical.

This is based on the few images shared on the official Riot Games Twitter, meaning there is still plenty to be revealed.

The good news is that gamers won’t have to wait long, as content creators will start sharing gameplay next week.

From what has been shared, new Breeze content will be shared on Monday, April 26, probably via Twitch.

A message from the official Valorant Twitter page reveals: “Excited to see how the best VALORANT players do in our new map Breeze?

“Competitors are busy with #VALORANTChallengers events today, so we’ll give all competitors special access to the map on April 26th when they’ll be able to stream and share content with our community.”

Riot Games has also confirmed that a new update is being planned for later this month, with the message adding:

“Our next patch is out on April 27 or 28, depending on where you are in the world.”

Another big update coming to Valorant is scheduled for May, with the Valorant Champions Tour 2021: Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík kicking off next month.

Discussing the Masters points structure for this year, Alex Francois, Global Head of Competitive Operations revealed:

“When determining how teams would qualify into Champions this year, we had one main goal – make it the most competitive tournament possible.

“To do that, we needed to weigh a variety of factors. First, we wanted to ensure that we were rewarding teams who have shown consistent results throughout the year.

“However, we also wanted to ensure that we were valuing the recency of results – finishes closer in time to Champions are likely a better indicator of success than finishes months earlier. Finally, we considered the fact that as we move to international competition, the difficulty of winning Masters grows.

“This all resulted in our existing Masters points structure. We believe that the balance of lower points at the Regional Masters events, followed by an increase in available points heading into Masters: Reykjavík, and an additional increase in points heading into Stage 3 Challengers (along with the automatic qualification into Champions for the winning team) will help us meet our goals.

“It’s important to remember that Championship Points will also count towards seeding at the Last Chance Qualifiers, pan-regional tournaments that will select the final teams for Champions, not just for qualification into Champions itself.”
