FOX 26 Houston Weather Forecast

Look for temperatures to get hotter through the holiday weekend. We should climb to the middle to upper 90s this weekend with heat index values soaring to 105-110 on Sunday and Monday. A HEAT ADVISORY will likely be issued for the area by Sunday or Monday. That means it's important to practice heat safety by drinking lots of water, not overdoing it in the heat, and wear light-colored clothing. Storm chances are low the next few nights with the best chance for isolated storms north and west of Houston.

It's a steam bath again and it's only getting hotter through the holiday weekend. Look for highs today in the low 90s with a heat index near 100. There is a chance for isolated evening storms close to Huntsville and College Station over the next couple of days. For the Memorial Day weekend, the combination of high humidity and hotter temperatures could lead to a heat advisory being issued for the first time this year. Also be aware that rip currents will be possible at our beaches, so please swim with caution.

FOX 26 Houston Weather Forecast

We have two main weather issues we are focusing on today.... the dangerous heat building and the threat for a few severe storms tonight. There are still thousands across SE Texas still without power from last Thursday's deadly storms and the heat is creating dangerous conditions. Look for the possibility of a few strong to severe storms making it into our northern counties tonight before weakening. Chance is low but strong winds and hail will be main threats along with a few heavy downpours. Best chance will be The Woodlands and areas north through midnight. We then transition to hot, steamy and mostly dry weather heading into the holiday weekend. Rain chances Thursday - Monday will only be around 10% but the heat will be building. Look for temperatures to soar to the middle to upper 90s this weekend with heat index values of 105+ by Sunday. That means a Heat Advisory could be right around the corner for the Houston area. So drink lots of water, take breaks and try to find a cooling center if you are still without power.

Summer-like weather is rushing into southeast Texas this week. Look for temperatures and heat index values to slowly climb as we move through the week. Highest rain chances will come late on Wednesday evening as storms from north Texas will slide south, falling apart before reaching Houston. There is some smoky air over the Gulf of Mexico that will make skies hazy over the next few days as well. Our bodies are not ready from this much heat so early in the season, so use caution with activities outdoors. Be safe in the heat!

Yesterday's ferocious line of storms produced winds near 100 mph right through downtown Houston. Two EF-1 tornadoes have also been confirmed, 110 mph tornado in Cypress and an EF-1 tornado just SW of Waller. The event is being called a "Derecho" because the intense line of storms stayed together for hundreds of miles producing severe wind gusts around hurricane force. Showers will come to an end tonight. But keep in mind flooding still occurring around the Brazos, Trinity & San Jacinto rivers due to all the recent rain. Our weather pattern this weekend and next week will shift to a hotter and drier one with heat index values climbing to triple digits next week. This will have big impacts on those without power so stay safe! Get the latest updates on storm cleanup, closings and weather where you live by checking out our smart tv app Fox Local!

It looks like wind gusts near 100 mph hit Downtown yesterday around 6:35 pm, but actual measured wind gusts reached category 1 hurricane strength. Today, there will be scattered showers and a few thunderstorms possible. There is a slight chance for a strong storm or two, but not like yesterday. Beginning this weekend, we're entering a calmer, but very warm pattern. Hot weather is a concern because many people may still be without power and air conditioning.
