The Houston area will see isolated showers and thunderstorms throughout the first Monday of 2023.

The National Weather Service is expecting a line of thunderstorms to pop up early afternoon. Winds are expected to gust at least 25 miles an hour in some spots around the city.

"There is the chance for some strong, isolated severe thunderstorms," says Jimmy Fowler, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

"They'll be more of the exception, rather than the rule. The main threat from the storms will be strong, gusty winds."

A cold front could move in late Monday or early Tuesday. Temperatures are not expected to dip down into the teens for this front like the weather before Christmas. Instead, the National Weather Service is predicting lows in the 40s later this week.

Fowler says if severe weather does make it's way into the Houston area, it will most likely be in the overnight hours.

"If we end up have to issue any type of warnings or anything like that, make sure you have a way to receive those warnings during the overnight timeframe,” Fowler said. “Try not to sleep through it."
