Houston Weather: More heat and humidity this week!

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Summer weather is here. Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog says a pattern change is underway that will bring us many 90-degree days this week, including for the long holiday weekend.

Another round of showers may reach us Tuesday afternoon, but Travis says the atmosphere should be too stable to produce any severe storms. This will likely mark the end of our spring severe weather season as a large heat ridge builds into Texas this weekend.

Heat index values will be between 100 and 105 degrees all week long, but the strong southeast breeze will help out a little. Travis says the persistent southeast wind will also lead to minor coastal flooding in low-lying spots.

Meanwhile, the first named storm of 2019 formed between the Bahamas and Bermuda Monday afternoon. Andrea is expected to weaken quickly and will not threaten the United States.
