Houston weather: Air Quality Alert extended, hot and dry Thursday evening

Air Quality Alert has been extended once again through Friday evening for the Houston area. That mean ozone levels in the atmosphere will remain elevated which could cause a problem for sensitive groups. Otherwise, we should be fairly quiet this evening and tonight with just a slim chance for a shower or storm. We are getting closer and closer to our holiday weekend! It looks like the weather pattern will remain on the quiet side with just isolated rain possible in the afternoon and near average heat for late May. Look for only a 10% chance for rain Friday through Sunday with rain chances increasing slightly to 20% for Memorial Day on Monday. Better storms chances are expected to return after the Memorial Day holiday. Temperatures are near normal for the next week with highs near 90 and overnight lows near 70.
