Dry through MLK Day, wetter pattern follows

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- We've got a beautiful day ahead with plenty of sunshine warming us up to the mid to upper 60s. MLK Day also looks great, a bit more cloud cover, but still a nice day with high temperatures in the upper 60s.

After the holiday weekend, warmer temps and rain chances return and stick around for several days.

What will the weather be like in Houston for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?

It looks great! We expect it to be a dry day with lots of sunshine in the morning and clouds building in during the afternoon. After a cold morning in the 30s, temperatures will warm into the upper 60s as the Gulf breeze picks up.

When is our next chance of rain?

A wet weather pattern will develop over Southeast Texas right after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. A cold front will blow into Texas but stall out to our north for much of the week. Jet stream disturbances riding over that front will trigger several rounds of rain, but it now looks like the highest accumulations will stretch from the Hill Country to North Texas. Tuesday brings a 30% chance for showers as moisture builds up. Wednesday looks slightly wetter as the front makes it's closest approach to us before stalling out again to our north. Rain chances will drop down to 20% Friday and Saturday as a weak front blows in some drier air. Another weather system approaching Sunday will bring up the chance for thunderstorms again. This unsettled weather pattern will continue into next week.

Is there any snow possible in Houston over the next 10 days?

Sorry. No snow.
