Scattered storms today ahead of rare July cool front

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Moisture will move in this afternoon bringing some scattered showers and storms to southeast Texas. Storms could bring moderate to heavy rain, lightning and brief gusty winds.

A rare summer cool front is expected to move across the area on Tuesday morning. This will bring us a chance of scattered showers and storms and slightly cooler temperatures with highs in the 80s.

Drier air will move in behind the front lowering the humidity and delivering more sunshine Wednesday and Thursday. Morning temperatures on Wednesday will start in the upper 60s to low 70s. The low temperatures Wednesday through Friday will come close to reaching record territory. For now, it does look like the records should stay safe.
