Houston weather: Cold arrives in region on Tuesday, with possibility of severe weather

“Strong winds and isolated hail is the main risk.”


A powerful cold front is getting ready to sweep into the Houston area, bringing with it the possibility of severe weather Tuesday evening into Wednesday.

The National Weather Service said to expect isolated scattered showers and thunderstorms to move into the area late Tuesday afternoon.

"Strong winds and isolated hail is the main risk," says Janice Maldonado, meteorologist, National Weather Service. "Brief downpours will be possible so we cannot rule out some minor street flooding."

The threat for hail and street flooding is low with this particular system, but any severe weather heading in our direction, will likely stay to the north and eastern parts of the city. Brief heavy downpours are a possibility as well, which could cause some minor street flooding.

The front should be out of the Houston region late Tuesday night, leaving behind drier and cooler conditions.

Lower temperatures will persist throughout the week, with highs projected to fall into the 60's, and lows in the 40's on both Wednesday and Thursday.
