Travis Herzog's weather forecast (KTRK)

Fall officially begins shortly after 3 PM, but as we like to say in Houston, that means absolutely nothing. Meteorologist Travis Herzog says high temperatures will be in the low 90s with the heat index reaching into the upper 90s.

Isolated downpours will develop this afternoon dumping a quick inch of rain, but Travis says most Houston area neighborhoods will stay dry. Saturday looks very similar to today.

The chance of rain will be going up next week, however. More numerous scattered thundershowers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday with widespread storm likely on Thursday. Travis says a slow-moving cool front will combine with deep tropical moisture to dump several inches of rain across Texas. It's still too early to determine how much rain we'll get here in Houston, so keep checking the forecast thru the weekend.
