A slow moving cold front and upper low pressure system continue to focus a large area of rainfall in Texas. Flooding rains have been slowly creeping along into the north-central and hill country areas of the state today. The likelihood of that rain getting to just West of the Houston area is increasing for Sunday as seen in the Super Microcast product above.
The water content of the atmosphere has been steadily increasing for the last 48hrs. Rainfall estimates of over an inch are possible just West of the Houston metro area from Columbus to Bryan, with lighter amounts East of I-45. Today's highest rainfall totals where in Mineral Wells 4.42", Rockport 4.90" and a 24 hour record for Wichita Falls at 2.75". The axis of the moist laden air will shift East closer to Houston on Sunday.
The front will stall out along the upper gulf coast area until Monday keeping rain chances active for another day Monday.
