HOUSTON (KIAH) — Houston’s rain will go from spotty to widespread this week as a few weather features influence our weather. Today, like Monday, any rain we see will be rather isolated and mostly confined to the 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. timeframe, forming along the sea breeze.

Also, Tuesday evening, a few showers and storms could head our way from north Texas, keeping a slim rain chance in the forecast for areas north of Houston until about 10 p.m.

On Wednesday, again we’ll see some afternoon storms along the sea breeze, with potential enhancement of those storms as another outflow from North Texas storms interacts with the sea breeze. That’s why we’ve increased the coverage of rain to 50% on Wednesday.

Odds go up even more Thursday and Friday as a disturbance moves in from the Gulf of Mexico.
