More scattered downpours are possible around Houston and southeast Texas on Thursday as rich, tropical moisture blows in from the Gulf of Mexico. Chief Meteorologist Tim Heller says the heavy rain will come with frequent lightning and thunder. Any storm that pops up could dump a quick inch of rain.

There were reports of funnel clouds and waterspouts around the area on Wednesday. The same tropical airmass could produce a few more funnel clouds on Thursday as well.

The chance of rain continues through Saturday as tropical moisture moves this way.

The National Hurricane Center says there's a high risk of a storm developing in the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week. Right now it looks like most of the moisture will be east of Texas. Tim says north winds blowing into Houston on the west side of the circulation will blow drier air into southeast Texas starting Sunday and that could push temperatures into the mid 90s by Memorial Day.
