More heavy rain possible late this week

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Your Wednesday will be a lot like Tuesday. We'll have hot temps, plenty of clouds, and a few showers and thunderstorms. Temps will rise to the middle 90s as we watch the system in the Gulf move towards the lower Texas coast.

How do our rain chances look later this week?
Rain chances start to really increase Thursday and Friday as an area of low pressure moves north from the Gulf. This area of low pressure has a 40% chance of developing into a tropical depression before moving inland. Either way, it looks like it could bring us some much needed rain. Keep in mind that some of that rain could be heavy and lead to localized flooding or ponding on roadways, but a lot of this rain will soak into the very dry soil.

Is there anything else worth watching in the tropics?
Potential Storm Two has formed in the Atlantic. It's tracking towards the Windward Islands and will stay well to our south. You can stay informed on everything happening in the tropics all season long with our daily tropical update.
