Friday morning weather forecast

Record heat is expected across Houston over the next few days as a strong ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our area. We will be near triple digits through Saturday with mainly dry weather. Weak cold front is expected to bring some relief next week on Monday and possibly help to steer a tropical system away from SE TX. Tropical wave in the SE Caribbean is expected to move west and has a 80-90% chance for development over the next 2-5 days. Models are projecting this will move W then NW through the Caribbean then turn north into the Gulf of Mexico next week. Models are disagreeing with where it will head once it reaches the Gulf so it is something we are monitoring closely.
