Super steamy with a few downpours through Friday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The heat index peaked at 109 on Wednesday, which is hot enough for a Heat Advisory. That same level of steam will be around Thursday and Friday so try to stay hydrated. If you have strenuous work or play planned outside, you might want to get it done during the early morning or late evening.

There'll still be enough moisture around for a few heavy downpours. Most of those will occur during the afternoon hours when the sea breeze blows through.

I Can we expect anymore loud storms this week?

Each day this week, the sea breeze will interact with the moisture we have in place to give us scattered, mainly afternoon thunderstorms. The rain may briefly be heavy and you'll need to watch out for lightning.

Are we expecting a rainy weekend
We only have a 20% chance of rain on Saturday but that rain chance will go up slightly to a 40% chance Sunday. You don't need to move those outdoor plans indoors, but you should stay weather aware in case a shower/storm moves into your area.
