HOUSTON –- Some much needed rain is heading to parts of southeast Texas as a cool front pushes through late Tuesday, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

Tuesday kicked off with low temperatures in the upper-50s and highs are expected to top off around 80 degrees under partly cloudy skies.

A frontal boundary will bring a line of showers through our area in the overnight hours.

“We’ll have a frontal boundary approaching the Brazos River Valley by about 5 p.m.,” said Gomez. “By about 10 p.m. we’ll see it moving through Huntsville and College Station – just north and west of Brenham. We’ll see light showers coming off the Gulf of Mexico through the evening hours – very light, slight chances for showers.”

The line of showers will move through the Houston area between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesday, possibly leaving behind some slick roads for your morning commute.

Temperatures on Wednesday morning will be in the low-50s. In the afternoon we’ll top out around 63 degrees. There’s a 40-percent chance for rain.

There’s a lingering chance for rain on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as daytime temperatures creep back into the 80s.
