HOUSTON — The threat of heavy rain has nearly moved out of the Houston area, the National Weather Service announced Monday.

NWS reports some light rain with a few heavy showers will be possible until 3 p.m.

The service announced a Flash Flood Watch for Monday morning, which has since been lifted.

Cold weather will be on tap Thursday in the wake of a strong cold front that sweeps through the area late Wednesday, NWS reports. That cold front will usher in the chilliest air of the season.

Thursday temperatures will stay mainly in the 40s with Wind Chill readings of 35-40 degrees.

Friday morning low temperatures will probably  fall below freezing for the northern portions of Southeast Texas. Below freezing temperatures may last two to six hours.
