Steamy Thursday for Houston, rain chance rises this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- More steamy heat is expected in Houston, but the heat backs off next week as remnant moisture from Barry returns to Texas. Thursday will start mild and humid in the upper 70s, then warm into the mid 90s. Factor in the humidity and it will feel like it's between 105-110 degrees. There's a less than 20% chance you'll get an afternoon downpour, so most of us will be left dry.

Friday looks to be a carbon-copy of Thursday, then the rain chance slowly creeps up over the weekend.

The remnant moisture of Barry will be making a loop back into Texas, and this will bring back a chance for scattered thunderstorm development. Because this moisture will stay entirely over land, there will be no tropical development. We simply expect more widespread summer thunderstorms that will bring a little heat relief to Houston area neighborhoods.
