HOUSTON -

As a cold front drops into Houston and stalls along the coast for the weekend, a combination of high moisture and instability in the atmosphere should promote scattered showers and storms through the end of the weekend. 

Our best opportunity for rain will be on Sunday. 

The front won't bring big changes in temperature or humidity for us, but it will be enough of a boundary to destabilize the air mass over southeast Texas through the entire weekend.  Expect about a 30 percent chance for scattered showers on Saturday. On Sunday, the lingering surface front, along with more available moisture and an approaching upper-atmospheric disturbance, will increase our rain chances to 60 percent.  Total rainfall in the Houston area for the weekend should average 1/2 to 1 inch.  Locally higher totals are certainly possible, though.

With ample cloud cover from start to finish, don't look for temperatures to skyrocket.  Afternoon highs should be in the mid to upper 80s.

Drier air should push into the region on Monday, which should end our chances for rain as we head into the work week.
