Houston forecast: Lovely Thursday before Friday rain and storms

Widespread rain returns Friday along with a slight risk of severe weather.

HOUSTON — What a wonderful Wednesday it was! Take a walk with a sweater this evening as we drop through the 60s and into the 50s before bedtime. 

Thursday starts cool then ends warm and more humid with highs in the 70s.

We also have really heavy pollen levels. It is the tree and grass levels that will get you today.

In fact, the National Weather Service has Southeast Texas in the "slight risk" zone for severe weather Friday. This includes a chance of gusty winds, downpours and hail. What are your Friday and early Saturday morning plans? We may see some widespread heavy rain during that timeframe. 1-3 inches at this point in a 24 hour period.

Thankfully, Saturday won't be a total wash out. The rain should clear out early with sunshine returning for the rest of the weekend.
