Warm temps and a chance for April showers this week

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- After a pleasant weekend, get ready for changes. Monday will start with a wind shift back in from the southeast allowing for Gulf moisture to get pumped back into Southeast Texas.

Cloud cover is expected to increase throughout the day Monday and into Monday night. Even with the extra clouds, temperatures are still expected to climb into the mid 80s. Also Monday night, we will have a slight chance of rain. Scattered storms are expected to move east from the Austin and San Antonio areas but they should weaken as they move towards Southeast TX.

Rain chances go up slightly Tuesday and Wednesday as a weak cool front moves slowly through the area.
