HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Showers and thunderstorms are along the coast are lifting northward, bringing a chance for rain to all this afternoon. The best rain chances will remain east of I-45.
The activity this morning isn't widespread, but already there's more development with showers and storms in the Gulf than what we saw yesterday morning. As those showers and storms drift north with the sea breeze daytime heating and an abundance of moisture will help to fuel them into very efficient rain-makers. Not everyone will see the rain (30% rain coverage), but those that do end up under a heavier downpour could pick up over an inch of rain in a hurry.
The heat ridge will strengthen and keep rain chances very slim as we head into the first part of the work week.
Toward the end of next week, rain chances will climb again as the heat ridge backs away and deeper moisture returns to Southeast Texas. For now we have a 30-40% chance of thunderstorms in the forecast Thursday through the weekend.
