HOUSTON -- There will be some spots that hit freezing in the northeast counties, said KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

Light winds, clear skies and very dry air should allow for temperatures to drop near freezing in places like Conroe, Huntsville and Livingston. The coldest air will be in the north and northeast of our viewing area.

There is not a freeze threat from Houston southward overnight because lows will be in the upper 30’s.

After a chilly start to your day, temperatures will rebound up into the mid-60’s on Wednesday under sunny skies.

You’ll need a coat again Thursday morning with lows in the 30’s. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 60’s.

We’ll finish out the work week under party cloudy skies and a high of 70 degrees on Friday.

There will be some rain this weekend, but it will most likely be Saturday night going into Sunday. There’s a 20-percent rain chance on Saturday and a 40-percent rain chance on Sunday.

It’ll get chilly again next week with highs in the 60’s and lows in the 30’s.
