HOUSTON -- Storms will continue throughout much of the viewing area late Monday night, said KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist David Paul. Temperatures will quickly drop overnight after the cold front and storm line passes through.

As the storms move through our viewing area Monday night, there will be winds of 30 to 40 mph and lightning. There will also be periods of brief heavy rain that should last about 10 minutes.

It’ll turn breezy and cooler once the storm passes through.

Temperatures will quickly drop from the 60’s to the 40’s by Tuesday morning.

The northern counties will wake up to temps in the mid-40’s, while areas to the south will be in the upper 40’s.

Expect highs in the upper 60’s during the day on Tuesday, along with a light breeze and sunshine.

The rain returns on Wednesday and Thursday. The extended forecast calls for a 70-percent chance for showers on both days. There’s a chance for stronger storms on Thursday.
