Humidity drops as we prepare for a tropical system in Gulf

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A "not as humid front" will blow in Friday. Then our attention will turn to Tropical Depression 22 developing in the western Gulf of Mexico.

We have high confidence this humidity break will last through the first half of the weekend. It will still be hot with highs around 90, but we'll catch one or two dry mornings with lows in the upper 60s.

On Sunday, what will likely be Tropical Storm Beta should be pushing tropical moisture back toward Texas. Chances for rain will be rising, and so will the tides along the Texas coast. The best chance of rain will be in our coastal counties. Depending on the track, we could be dealing with rounds of rain and unusually high tides for several days next week. Because of the weak steering currents, the track and impact forecasts will be challenging, so stay aware and informed in the days ahead as we try to get a better handle of what it will do.
