A few thunderstorms possible today and tomorrow

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A little surge of moisture coming in from the Gulf of Mexico this weekend might be just enough to overcome a heat ridge and bring a few afternoon thundershowers.

Today we're expecting highs in the mid 90s with an Ozone Pollution Watch in effect, too. Ozone is a lung irritant, so sensitive individuals with asthma and other lung conditions should use caution when outside in the afternoon and evening.

Sunday will be similar to Saturday, and once again you have a 30% chance of getting an afternoon downpour.

Toward the end of next week, rain chances will climb again as the heat ridge backs away and deeper moisture returns to Southeast Texas. For now we have a 30-40% chance of thunderstorms in the forecast Thursday through the weekend.
