HOUSTON – After a chilly start, Wednesday will be sunny and cool ahead of an increasing chance for rain later this week, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
Early this morning we were in the 30s and 40s across town. We’ll top out in the mid-60s Wednesday afternoon before dropping back into the mid-40s overnight into Thursday morning.
There’s a 40-percent chance for rain Thursday as temperatures drop heading into Friday.
“Thursday into Friday we get our next cold front in from the northeast,” said Johnson. “That trough of low pressure is going to help drop our temperatures into the freezing mark early Friday morning. There’s a 30-percent chance for rain, but it could evaporate before it hits the ground. It could fall in the form of sleet or freezing rain. While precipitation will likely be limited, we’ll need to keep an eye on our roads Friday morning.”
The National Weather Service says a Winter Storm Watch or Winter Weather Advisory will likely be required for the overnight hours Thursday into Friday.
Our overnight temperatures will leave us very cold Friday morning and Saturday morning with lows around 30 degrees.
Sunday things will start to warm up as clear skies return.
