Houston and surrounding residents can expect rain chances to decrease in the coming days but the chances for heat are great.
According to weather reports, although there are chances for afternoon thunderstorms, the heat will take precedence.
With a 20 percent chance for thunderstorms, temperatures are expected to be in the mid-to low 90s during the next few days and well into the weekend.
With rising heat comes a rising heat index each day. Many Houston area neighborhoods could feel and see and feel temperatures reach well over 100 degrees.
