As a front stalls across Southeast Texas, the rain chances stick with us into the upcoming holiday weekend. Scattered rain and thunderstorms will be possible Saturday morning ahead of more widespread activity by the afternoon hours. We’ll look to quiet things down a bit as the sun goes down, attempting to help out those late night fireworks plans. Thermometers reach for the upper 80s by the afternoon after starting off the morning in the mid 70s.

Additional activity will be possible into the second half of the weekend on Independence Day. While most of the activity should sit sub-severe, biggest concerns to monitor with a stronger storm include heavy rainfall, lightning and gusty winds. Don’t cancel celebrations, but have a backup plan to take those inside in the event that tropical downpours roll through your area. While the rain will likely inconvenience some of our outdoor plans and celebrations, the good news is it -- along with added cloud cover -- should hold temperatures around the mid-to-upper 80s.

As additional moisture sticks with us through the weekend, additional rain and storms stick with us through at least the first half of next week. Stay tuned!
