HOUSTON -– Isolated storms brought small hail to Brenham and other areas north of Houston early Monday.

A Tornado Watch is in effect until 12 p.m. for Polk, San Jacinto, and Walker counties.

According to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson, most of the severe weather will stay well north of I-10.

There’s about a 30-percent chance for rain in Houston through lunchtime.

“The storms are moving east of Houston now, so what’s left are just a few weak thunderstorms,” said Johnson. “For most Houstonians, you’ll just see cloudy skies today, and it is sticky out there with all of this added humidity.”

We’ll top out around 91 degrees Monday afternoon.

Thanks to today’s cool front, the rest of this week will be slightly cooler.

Tuesday we’ll top out around 88 degrees, but starting Wednesday our daytime highs will only reach about 80 degrees.

Overnight lows later this week will be in the mid-50s.

The upcoming weekend is looking really nice with mostly clear skies and daytime temps in the low-80s.

Early next week the temperatures will start to rise once again.
