HOUSTON -- There’s potential for severe weather on Thursday, said KHOU11 News Meteorologist David Paul.

Overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning, it will be cloudy and drizzly with temps near 60. Areas near the coast will have overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 60’s because warm air is coming up from the south. That warm front will feed Thursday’s severe weather.

Expect to wake up to scattered showers around 6 a.m. Thursday. The treat for severe weather is from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. During that time there could be heavy rain, hail and there’s a slight tornado threat for areas near College Station, Conroe and Liberty.

By 3 p.m., the rain will move out of the area. Thursday afternoon highs should reach 70.

Conditions will then improve as we go into Friday and the weekend.

There’s a 20-percent chance for showers Friday morning. The temperature should reach 70 in the afternoon.

The weather will keep improving as we move into Saturday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with temps near 70.
