HOUSTON – The storms are gone for now and we’re looking at a cooler Friday. Already this morning we started in the mid-60s and were only jumping into the mid-70s this afternoon.

We will see a slight chance for some leftover showers this morning but nothing severe and they should wrap up by this afternoon.

Showers and stronger thunderstorms will move back into the picture tomorrow evening overnight into Easter Sunday morning.

As of Friday morning, it appears the best chance for severe storms will stay mainly north of the Greater Houston area. The greatest threats from these storms will be in the form of hail and damaging wind. Some street flooding is also possible, as it is from any thunderstorm event in our region.

Early Easter Sunday is when we could see our greatest chance for strong to severe storms again.

Notice that the biggest bullseye is further east into Louisiana and Mississippi, however, we are still on the edge and will likely see some strong storms early morning on Sunday. The threats are still the same -- lightning, damaging winds and hail.

Thankfully, skies will clear by the afternoon. If you’re trying to plan an outdoor Easter egg hunt with the kiddos in the backyard, definitely wait for the afternoon hours.
