HOUSTON -- A big round of rain and thunderstorms are expected to move through the area where a plant caught fire and exploded in West, Texas.
The rain will move into the area around 6 a.m. before proceeding southward toward southeast Texas.
As Houstonians go into Thursday afternoon, we also have the chance for severe thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will begin to arrive in southeast Houston between noon to 3 p.m. They will last through the early evening. As the storms push east, colder air will move in. There’s a 60-percent chance for rain with afternoon temps in the 80s.
The cool front will leave us with chilly temps on Friday. We’ll be in the 40s and 50s in the morning and in the upper-60s in the afternoon.
