Saturday’s heat with storms will likely bring a break from the oppressive temperatures
After a record high of 106 degrees on Friday, Saturday will be “even colder” due to increased storms in the area today. We still have temperature advisories but the area of concern is mostly west of I-45, and actual highs are expected to be in the 100-103 range in those areas.

Tropical Storm Margot formed Thursday afternoon and is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean.
If we reach 100 degrees on Saturday, it will likely be the last for the year. Next week, northerly winds will keep temperatures in the 90s and small areas of low pressure could bring much-needed rain from time to time. The last date we reached 100 degrees was September 27, 2005. This occurred as Hurricane Rita passed east of Houston. Dry north winds created conditions to reach 100 degrees.
