HOUSTON -- If you’ve stepped outside Thursday night, you’ll notice there is an increase in clouds.

“It’s chilly, but it’s not going to get really cold tonight because the clouds will serve as a blanket,” said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist David Paul.

Temperatures in our area will slowly drop to the upper 40s overnight, compared to Wednesday evening’s lows which were about 17 degrees colder.

Our spectacular stretch of weather is coming to an end as a front moves in. We need the rain, and our first chance of sprinkles will be Friday afternoon and evening. But, our best chances of rain are Saturday and Sunday.

With a lot of weekend events planned, get your rain gear ready now. There’s a 40-percent chance of rain on Saturday, and a 60-percent chance of showers on Sunday.

Looking ahead to Christmas, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist David Paul said it’s going to be cold. The 12-day forecast shows a high of 42 on Christmas Eve and a high of 45 on Christmas Day. Because this is a long-range forecast, these conditions are subject to change.
