HOUSTON WEATHER: Warmer and stormier on Monday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- After a nice and cool weekend, the heat and storms return Monday.

A warm front in the Gulf will start moving northward towards the coast Monday. This warm front will continue to lift northward during the day bringing warmer temperatures and scattered rain to the area.

Make sure you take the umbrella with you and just keep it with you through midweek. Rain chances will stay elevated through Wednesday morning because of the front stalled out nearby and moisture from a tropical weather system in the Pacific flowing into it.

Our next cool front is forecast to move in by Wednesday morning bringing in more scattered rain and another round of cooler temperatures. Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday should only rise into the 70s. We warm back up as we head into the weekend.
