Break from the heat: Front moves through bringing scattered showers, storms

By Britta Merwin - Meteorologist, Aaron Barker - Senior Digital Editor, Justin Stapleton - KPRC Weekend Meteorologist

HOUSTON - A cold front is moving into southeast Texas Thursday morning and will stall over the area Thursday and Friday, producing scattered thunderstorms.

Drivers can expect scattered showers and storms mainly north of I-10 during the morning commute Thursday.

The risk for severe weather is low, but brief gusty winds, lightning and downpours can be expected when storms move through.

There is a possibility of a second round of storms Thursday afternoon as the front stalls across the area. These storms could also produce some heavy downpours for the evening commute. Areas that do not experience stormy weather Thursday morning will have a greater chance of more storms later in the day.

Otherwise, look for mostly cloudy skies and warm, muggy conditions with temperatures in the upper 80s by the afternoon.

Some scattered storms are also possible Friday as the front falls apart over the area. Temperatures will climb to near 90 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday will feature a mix of clouds and sun with temperatures in the low 90s. A few isolated showers are possible Saturday.

Plenty of heat and sunshine will return by next week. With dry weather, expected temperatures will soar to the mid-90s.
