Another round of thunderstorms possible Wednesday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- We're expecting a quiet night after a round of thunderstorms knocked out power and dropped a quick 1-3" of rain in some Houston-area neighborhoods Tuesday.

The same general weather pattern that brought Tuesday's storms will hold for Wednesday, bringing another chance of late afternoon and early evening downpours. Any storm that pops up Wednesday could produce a quick 1" of rain, wind gusts up to 50 mph, pea-size hail, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning.

Toward the end of the week a heat ridge will build overhead, bringing back hot, mostly dry weather for the weekend. Temperatures will run a little hotter than average but should stay shy of the century mark.

Toward the end of next week, rain chances will climb again as the heat ridge backs away and deeper moisture returns to Southeast Texas.
