A cold front (in name only) that blew through Houston overnight will provide much-wanted relief from the seasonal humidity, if only for a day.

Storms ahead of the front brought rain and thunder to much of the Houston area early Monday morning. Isolated showers could pop up throughout the day, but the bulk of the storms have passed, according to the National Weather Service.

Drier air will move into the Houston area behind the front, bringing down humidity for the remainder of the day, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures could rise to the upper-90s Monday, although they barely broke the mid-80s by noon.

Overnight, low temperatures will be lower than normal, meteorologists say.

Rain chances return Wednesday evening.
