HOUSTON -- Storms in Central Texas moved toward the Houston area overnight, and could make Thursday morning's commute difficult due to rain showers, according to KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul.

“Thursday morning there’s a 30 percent chance for rain at 6 a.m.,” said Paul.

Temps kick off Thursday morning in the upper-70s and top off at 90 degrees.

“The scattered thundershowers hang on until 7 p.m.,” said Paul.

On Friday there’s a 70-percent rain chance.

“Friday is the day we may have some of the heaviest rain we’ve had in awhile,” said Paul.

All of this cloud coverage is keeping our temps down from where they were last weekend -- in the upper-80s and low-90s.

The chance for scattered rain and storms continues this weekend, too.

Next week will be sunny and hot with daytime temps approaching 100 degrees.
