HOUSTON WEATHER: African dust and rain chance for Father's Day

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A light cloud of African dust and rain chances are here for Father's Day weekend in Houston. You might notice the sky looks a little gray this weekend as the dust particles from the Sahara Desert blow overhead, but health impacts should be minimal given the light nature of this cloud.

Strong southerly winds will also boost the steam factor for Father's Day Weekend, bringing back a chance for afternoon downpours both Saturday and Sunday. There's no need to cancel any outdoor plans right now, but some of the scattered storms could become strong to severe. The main threat for severe storms Sunday will be strong wind gusts.
