HOUSTON — There is a small chance for severe storms this weekend as temperatures continue to warm up, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

Sunday morning will start out with a mix of clouds and sun with temperatures in the low-70s. By 1 p.m., we could see some light rain develop around the College Station and Huntsville areas.

The Piney Woods area is likely to see the worst of the potential thunderstorms, which could bring large hail, gusty winds and a tornado or two.

The storms are part of a frontal boundary moving through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Overall there is about a 30 percent chance of rain for the communities north of the Houston metro area Sunday afternoon.

Expect to see temps peak in the upper-80s.

As the frontal boundary continues to move through Monday morning, the Houston area could see a line of storms develop around 10 a.m.

On Tuesday the skies start to clear out, and on Wednesday our daytime temperatures drop back into the mid-70s.

Early Wednesday and Thursday morning we could be looking at temps in the mid-50s thanks to the arrival of the cold front.
