HOUSTON -– There’s a chance for severe weather in southeast Texas overnight heading into the early morning hours of Christmas Day, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
Monday was muggy and mostly sunny with high temps in the mid- to upper-70s.
“We have clouds starting to break apart Monday afternoon, but let me tell you, we have big changes for this evening and into our early hours Christmas Day,” said Johnson.
The forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of rain Monday and a 70 percent chance of rain on Tuesday. The greatest chance for severe thunderstorms and downpours is in the early morning hours as a cold front moves in.
By Wednesday, we’ll have mostly sunny skies once again, but our temps will be much cooler. Early in the morning we’ll be in the low-30s, and we’ll only top out around 50 degrees in the afternoon.
Thursday’s weather will be pleasant but a few degrees warmer. By Friday we’ll have another chance for rain.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone!
