Heat Advisory possible Friday, storms return this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Friday will bring another potentially dangerous combination of heat and humidity before rain chances return this weekend. Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog says the heat index Friday should peak around 108-degrees, which is the threshold for a heat advisory.

Temperatures will only dip into the low 80s overnight as clouds over Houston trap in some of the heat from Thursday. Temperatures will climb into the mid 90s as the sun pokes out during the afternoon.

The heat will abate some this weekend and Monday as scattered downpours cool off some Houston area neighborhoods. Travis says most of the scattered storms that pop up Saturday and Sunday will occur during the afternoon hours and should dissipate by the evening.

Stronger thunderstorms are possible Monday as unusually strong jet stream winds blow overhead. After the storms clear, a thick cloud of dust from African's Sahara Desert will turn the sky hazy gray for the reset of next week.
