HOUSTON – A line of severe weather from the northwest is making its way across Texas and should arrive Sunday morning, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez said Saturday.

Parts of the Houston area have already seen some light rain Saturday as the weekend gets underway. Most of the showers have cleared the area and are moving east along I-10 corridor towards Liberty County.

In the meantime, the Houston area should see a break in the clouds for a little bit this afternoon before they return later this evening. There is a 20 percent chance of rain for Saturday with a high 75 and sustained winds of 20 mph.

The severe weather will arrive in the communities northwest of Houston at about 5 a.m. The line of storms could develop into some severe weather cells with heavy rainfall and some hail.

The line of storms will make their way towards to Houston before 10 a.m., but should die down significantly as they move closer to the coastal communities.

There is a 70 percent chance of rain for Sunday, but the rain should clear the area before 7 p.m.
