Air quality alert for parts of Houston, better rain chance Sunday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Unhealthy levels of ozone are popping up in some Houston-area neighborhoods.



There's still a 20% chance for a late day thundershower to help cool us off and clean out the air.

Deep moisture associated with Tropical Depression Claudette will blow in on Sunday, pushing rain chances up to 30%. Temperatures will start in the upper 70s and warm into the low 90s. Wherever it rains, temperatures will cool off into the upper 70s and low 80s.

The Gulf of Mexico is getting stirred up by Claudette, and that's leading to a hazard in the waters, strong rip currents are possible along area beaches.

Experts warn beachgoers to use extreme caution if entering the water, and stay near a lifeguard.
