    Consistent Heat, Storms to Remain for Houston

    Highs will reach the 90s for the remainder of the week into the weekend, right in time for the showdown between the Houston Astros and the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday and Saturday evenings.

    Thunderstorms will continue to threaten the area through the remainder of the week and into the weekend as the Gulf of Mexico's warm waters will continue to bring higher humidity, less heat and more thunderstorms to the Greater Houston area.

    With partly sunny skies forecasted for Friday and Saturday, temperatures will remain in the 90s as cloud coverage will help to block out some of the sun's rays.

    Similar to last August, so far this month, the city has had only one day below 90 degrees and is not likely to see another until Thursday or Friday of next week.

    While heat is expected to remain for late summer and early fall, beginning in late October a secondary severe weather season is expected to drive even more severe storms to the Gulf Coast.
