Anytime you mix the remnants of a tropical cyclone, in this case Miriam and a slow moving upper level disturbance, the result is usually flash flooding. As it turns out Texas could actually use the rainfall.  The latest drought monitor indicates 57% of the state is still seeing severe drought conditions left over from previous dry years.

In anticipation of the rainy weather a flash flood watch has been issued from Saturday morning to Sunday morning for all of southeast Texas. Average rainfall numbers will range from 1" - 2" with isolated amounts as high as 4". We'll be on weather watch through Sunday morning. Just a reminder that the latest radars for your neighborhood are always on KHOU.com.
