Saturday Night: Heavy rain threat continues into Sunday

Weather

A Flash Flood watch remains in effect through Sunday evening. Rain totals will likely be 1-3″ with locally higher amounts – This could lead to ponding of water in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Flash flooding will be a threat for areas that receive the heaviest rain. Have a way to receive alerts that may be issued for your area, and avoid all flooded areas!

Tonight: Passing showers and storms are possible. Some storms may produce heavy rain.

Sunday: An upper level low will be slowly moving across Texas this weekend and this will lead to more shower and storm development at times. Rain chances are around 80% on Sunday. Heavy rain may lead to flash flooding. Highs will be in the lower 80s, but some may only warm into the 70s if storms develop early enough.

Monday-Wednesday: High rain chances continue through midweek. Highs will be in the mid 80s.

Thursday-Weekend: Rain chances finally start to drop a little bit, but it won’t totally be dry. We will be more in a summer weather pattern with daily pop up showers and storms. Summer heat returns!

Tracking the Tropics: While the tropics are expected to stay quiet at least for the next five days, we may need to watch for development in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico within the next 7-10 days. Stay alert and stay tuned!
