It's game day! Oh, who doesn't like hearing those words?! It should be a fairly clean game as far as the weather is concerned but there may be a few flags flown thanks to 'foul' weather that may push through in the form of scattered showers.
A heat advisory is in effect from noon until 7pm Saturday. Heat index values may push 108°F in some locations today. So while the temperatures themselves will likely stay below 100F, it'll feel like we reached it anyway.
As mentioned, a few passing showers will be welcome relief for a select few of us. They won't be noteworthy if they do form. Here's to hoping you get doused with some. The chance of rain is 20% (30% well east of I-45).
Expect the exact same weather for your Sunday with another 20% chance of showers in the forecast.
This weekend marks the 36th anniversary of Hurricane Alicia. That storm was the last major hurricane to directly impact Houston (Ike was cat 2). Alicia is remembered for the tremendous glass breakage in downtown Houston with winds gusting as high as 126 mph.
Thankfully, the tropics are quiet and there is no real threat of development at any time over the next 10-15 days. Uncanny for August.
However, models are sniffing a robust tropical wave in the Bay of Campache by next weekend that could make its way towards the upper-Texas coast. If that's the case, we could see our rain chance go up big time by next Saturday and Sunday.
At this time, I'm not overly concerned about anything developing. I'll let you know if that changes. Until then, enjoy the weekend.
