Scattered storms possible Thursday, drier for the weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- No more severe weather is expected overnight.

Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog says Thursday will start with rain-cooled lows in the mid 60s, then more downpours will pop up as temperatures climb into the mid 80s. These storms will be more scattered in nature, and they will not pack the same punch as what hit us Wednesday. Any storm that develops could produce hail and gusty winds, but they will likely stay just below severe thresholds in most neighborhoods.

On Friday a weak front will blow in with dry northerly winds. This dry air will bring rain chances down to 20% or less through the weekend, but don't expect it to get any cooler.

Over the weekend high temperatures will still manage to climb into the 90s. A heat ridge building overhead next week will bring several days in the 90s with little hope for rain.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bertha made landfall along the coast of South Carolina coast Wednesday. Periods of heavy rain will continue overnight as the system moves through the mid-Atlantic states.


Bertha is the second storm to form before the start of the official hurricane season, which begins June 1.
