HOUSTON -- Most of the storms have moved out of the Houston area, but more storms are heading our way overnight, creating slick roads around town, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.

There's a 20-percent chance for rain Thursday evening with temps in the lower-80s.

On Friday there’s a 70-percent rain chance, and it's believed we could receive the heaviest rain we’ve had in awhile.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7 p.m. Friday for Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller and Washington Counties.

"It will be a stormy morning commute," said garner.

All of this cloud coverage is keeping our temps down from where they were last weekend -- in the upper-80s and low-90s.

The chance for scattered rain and storms continues this weekend, too.

Next week will be sunny and hot with daytime temps approaching 100 degrees.
