HOUSTON – Much of southeast Texas fell into another hard freeze overnight into Tuesday morning, but big changes are on the way, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
Tuesday morning we bottomed out in the 10s and 20s across town. This afternoon we’ll top out in the mid-40s under partly cloudy skies.
“Last night we saw some high clouds move in, so that limited our temperatures from dropping as much as they probably could have,” said Johnson. “It’s tonight into Tuesday morning that we’re going to see increasing moisture, and this is going to set the stage for the chance for developing showers starting as early as tomorrow morning. The better chance for more widespread rainfall is Thursday into Friday.”
Wednesday there’s a 20-percent chance for rain with early-morning temps in the upper-30s. In the afternoon we’ll top out near 60 degrees.
Thursday and Friday there’s a 50-percent chance for rain with daytime temperatures in the 60s and 70s.
This weekend things cool off and clear out with daytime temps around 60 and overnight lows around 40.
