Thunderstorm chance increases Tuesday into Wednesday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A stalled front will keep southeast Texas in a wet, humid weather pattern through Wednesday.It will be another warm, muggy start to the day with temperatures in the mid 70s. Temperatures will again climb to near 90 Tuesday afternoon before storms develop along the front north of Houston. Storm chances increase for Houston Tuesday night and Wednesday as the front finally moves south and pushes offshore.

It’s possible, but not likely. If any storms do turn severe, quarter inch hail and wind gusts of 60 mph are the primary concerns. Because the storms will form and move along the stalled front, street flooding is possible where they heaviest rain falls.

How cool will it get behind the front?
We’ll catch one or two afternoons in the 70s with another big drop in the humidity. Temperatures will dip as low as the upper 50s Thursday and Friday mornings, especially north of Houston.

What about the weekend?
The muggy air rushes right back in for the weekend. Rain chances will stay low on Saturday at just 20%, but they double to 40% Sunday as deep moisture moves overhead. The weather pattern Sunday through much of next week will favor slow-moving, heavy thunderstorms that could lead to street flooding.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch south of Houston until 8 p.m.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Widely scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop along a weak front this afternoon, and a few of those storms could turn severe, especially south of I-10. That’s where a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 8 p.m.
The front will slowly push from Houston to the Gulf coast as we go into the overnight hours, so any of the storms could also produce localized street flooding. Where temperatures reach into the 80s south of the front, showers and thunderstorms will bubble up in the moist air. If you miss out on that round of storms, the next best opportunity for rain will come Friday as a stronger cool front blows through.

There is a chance some of the storms could produce severe hail and winds, but it’s a small chance. We don’t anticipate any bayou or creek flooding, but pockets of street flooding could pop up underneath the heaviest storms, especially if they move slowly.

How much rain could we get this week?
By the end of the week, 1-2″ of rain could be fairly common around Houston and north of I-10. Less than 1″ is most likely in our coastal counties and communities.

How cool will it get behind these two cool fronts?
Tonight’s front is weak, so the temperature change will be minimal but noticeable. Highs will drop from the 80s to the 70s, and lows will drop from the 70s to the 60s. Friday night’s front is stronger, and it will usher in several days with lows in the 50s and highs in the low-to-mid 70s.

What can we expect for the weekend ahead?
A few showers could linger into Saturday behind Friday night’s cold front. Temperatures will start in the 50s and climb into the 70s, but if we get more rain than we are expecting, highs may peak in the 60s. Sunday should bring more sunshine breaking through the clouds and drier air. Temperatures will start in the mid 50s and warm into the low 70s.
