Chilly rain showers return Saturday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- We hope you enjoyed the break in the rain Friday because widespread showers will overspread Southeast Texas Saturday.

Temperatures Saturday morning will start in the 40s, but an abundance of clouds should keep most neighborhood temperatures closer to 50 degrees than 40 degrees.

An upper level low now over Mexico will move through Texas this weekend, steadily pushing rain showers our way throughout the day. While the day may begin mostly dry, widespread showers are expected Saturday afternoon and especially Saturday evening. Temperatures will be trapped in the 50s due to the clouds and rain, so keep your jacket and umbrella handy while out and about town.

How much rain could we get?

Since these will mostly be steady, gentle showers, most of us can expect less than half an inch of rain. There will be some pockets of 1-2" totals, especially near the coast. A few rumbles of thunder and even isolated hailstorms are possible Saturday evening, especially north of I-10 where a pocket of colder air aloft will move overhead.

What can we expect for Sunday?

A few showers will linger past sunrise, but it should dry up pretty quickly as the upper level low move to our east early in the day. Temperatures will again dip into the upper 40s before sunshine emerges to warm us back into the 60s.

What kind of weather will we have when returning to work and school next week?

Monday should bring beautiful but chilly weather. Temperatures will dip into the upper 30s and lower 40s around sunrise, then abundant sunshine will warm temperatures into the upper 60s during the afternoon.
