Rain chance increases this weekend, fall front expected next week

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Rain chances are going back up over the weekend, but next week we are expecting a big drop in the humidity with the arrival of our first fall front.

Before we get that taste of fall fresh air, we have deeper moisture and higher rain chances on the way.

The remnants of Nicholas remain over Louisiana, and that moisture will impact our weather in Houston again on Friday.

We expect less clouds and more heat Friday with highs around 90. There will be enough moisture in the air for an isolated shower, especially east of I-45.

How is the weekend shaping up?
Gulf moisture picks up a notch Saturday and Sunday, so we have 40% rain chances in the forecast. With the added clouds and moisture, temperatures will peak in the mid and upper 80s.

Okay, get to the good stuff. What can you tell us about next week's front?

We've got our first fall-front penciled in for Wednesday, the day astronomical fall begins. This front looks like it will bring us a splendid drop in the humidity with cool mornings in the 50s and 60s and mild afternoons in the 80s. There is a chance of storms when the front blows in either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Is there anything else of concern in the tropics?
There are two tropical systems with a high chance for development over the next 5 days, but neither is a concern to Texas at this time. You can get a full overview of the tropics on our tropical update page.
