HOUSTON -- We may see another round of scattered thunderstorms in the Houston area Wednesday afternoon, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson said.

Lows kicked off in the lower-70s, highs are expected to top off in the low-to mid-90s and there is a 40-percent chance for rain.

On Tuesday, severe weather moved through northern Harris and surrounding counties, bringing heavy rain, lightning and flooding. The strongest storms were up in Walker County and headed north toward Madison County.

An upper level low pressure system has been drawing moisture out of the Gulf, sending it inland several days in a row. We should break out of this system by Thursday or Friday.

By the end of the week our rain chance drops to 30-percent with lows in the mid-70s and highs in the low-90s.
