HOUSTON – A line of strong thunderstorms will continue to move into East Texas and Louisiana for the rest of Sunday afternoon.

While we may see some storms re-firing later in the day, we’re not expecting them to become severe; however, will drop some additional rainfall through the evening.

Temperatures will continue to drop into the 60s with much drier air later Sunday night.

Monday and most of next week will be almost perfect weather with sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid-80s.

Another cold front pushes through midweek, dropping highs into the 70s and lows into the 50s.
