Get ready for a wet weekend.

The National Weather Service is predicting scattered showers and thunderstorms across parts of our region starting Saturday that may bring “damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.”

The severe weather doesn’t begin until late Saturday when a fast-moving cold front will cross into the area, bringing with it a slight risk of severe storms, according to meteorologists.

On Friday, Houstonians can expect a “warm front” to move into the area ahead of Saturday’s severe weather. The warm front will leave patchy dense fog and light rain over much of Houston and will bring high temperatures into the upper 70s.

Temperatures on Saturday night will drop into the 50s.
