More tropical downpours possible this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Another explosion of storms is expected today, and Collin Myers says these storms will impact some of our coastal communities primarily.

These storms will trigger additional thunderstorms development inland as the atmosphere warms up after sunrise. Areas south of I-10 that get the rain will likely pick up 1-3" with some isolated spots getting over 4". Street flooding and lightning will be the biggest threats. Gusty winds and isolated tornadoes are also possible but will be less common. The deep moisture will move away from us Sunday afternoon, bringing rain chances back down to 20% as Houston ISD returns to school Monday.

The last week of August brings more typical summer weather with hot afternoons and a small chance of a downpour. That pattern will change by Labor Day weekend as a cool front sliding down the Plains rolls into Texas and possibly all the way into Houston. Collin says this will bring us a drop in the humidity more than anything else, but some communities northeast of Houston could dip into the 60s at night. Collin also says we'll have to watch the Gulf after Labor Day for possible tropical development along the cool front.
