HOUSTON -– A cold front brought more rain and scattered thunderstorms to Texas early Monday, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Austin, Brazos, Colorado, Grimes, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, and Washington Counties until 5 p.m. The alert also extends to areas west of Houston outside of the KHOU 11 viewing area.

Johnson says scattered storms and rain will move through Houston through the late morning and early afternoon hours. Some of these storms could be severe -- especially west and north of Houston.

“Our timeline for rain today is mainly between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.,” said Johnson. “The showers should move out in time for your drive home this afternoon.”

There’s a 40-percent chance for rain with a drop in the temps expected. We’ll be in the low-50s by the evening hours and in the low-40s by Tuesday morning.

The cooler temps stick around through Thursday morning, but we’ll get back into the upper-70s and low-80s by the weekend.

Clouds and light rain return on Friday and Saturday.
