HOUSTON -- Our best chance for thunderstorms on Wednesday is midday and the early afternoon, said KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 60’s and low 70’s with mild and humid conditions.

Wednesday starts off with a 30 percent rain chance. Between 9 a.m. and noon, the chance for thunderstorms increases to 70 percent. As the storms roll in, the best chance for severe weather, including hail and straight line winds, is in our northern areas near Conroe, Humble, Cleveland and Huntsville.

Everybody has a chance for getting wet in the early afternoon as a line of showers moves behind the storm system. The winds will shift from the south to the north as we go into the afternoon.

By 7 p.m., the storm system will be off the coast, but it will be replaced by cold air. Some lingering showers are possible Wednesday night as the temps drop into the 50’s and 60’s.

The cold air stays around on Thursday. You’ll wake up to temps in the 40’s before it gradually warms up to the 60’s in the afternoon.

A warming trend begins Friday as temps make their way to 80 degrees on Sunday.
