An upper level disturbance pushed across southeast Texas causing heavy rain over Harris county. Harris county flood control gauges reveal as much as 2" - 4" across the Northern portion of Harris county. The White Oak bayou watershed picked up 2" - 3" of rain. Fortunately since the bayous where low, no flood warnings or watches where needed.

A cool front will slowly advance towards the Texas coast today and tonight. Expect continued chances for rain all day Sunday. Showers diminishing from North to South as drier air filters in Monday. Slightly cooler less humid air pushes in by Monday evening with overnight lows possibly reaching the mid to upper 60s North of the metro area Tuesday morning. Houston temperatures will also be closer to 70 degrees rather the steamy mid to upper 70s of the past few weeks.

Rain chances return after mid week as another upper level disturbance sweeps into region Wed - Fri. Temperatures will return to their August levels of the low 90s through the end of the work week. Tropical weather will also be a concern as Tropical Storm Isaac could be brewing by Wednesday near the eastern Carribean. As always you can check the latest tropical weather on KHOU's Hurricane Central on this web site.
