HOUSTON -– Most of the Houston area has a chance of receiving severe weather approaching lunchtime, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

The fast-moving storms are coming in from the northwest as a cool front collides with warm moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

“The Storm Prediction Center still has us under a general risk for severe weather for early this morning into our midday,” said Johnson.

The National Weather Service warned that from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., gusty damaging wind and isolated tornadoes are possible, especially in counties north of Houston.

The bad weather should move out by late afternoon heading into our evening hours.

Friday there’s only a 20-percent chance of rain with temperatures in the low-70s. The weather stays nice but partly cloudy through the weekend.
