There’s also a possibility that the storms could become severe, according to meteorologists. Severe weather means a possible tornado, heavy winds and hail, although experts with the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center give Southeast Texas only a marginal chance – the lowest of five.

The sun will shine again Thursday, and dry conditions are expected to continue through the daytime Sunday. High temperatures will hover around 70 degrees.

Rain chances return Sunday night.
