The chance for scattered storms and downpours continues the entire workweek ahead of Saharan dust.  The storm  potential will diminish as we head into the end of the work week, and into the weekend, when the dust should entering the Houston area. Get ready to see some amazing sunrises and sunset but don’t be surprised if a few showers linger into the weekend. 

The good news is the dust, which is over the Atlantic for now, has helped keep the tropics calm, so no hurricanes and tropical storms anywhere in sight, likely for the rest of this month.
