It wasn't much but any where from .25" to over .50" of rain fell across some parts of southeast Texas in two separate events. The first wave of rain showers skirted the metro area to the Northeast and Southeast. The second wave made it into town and drove the heaviest severe storms across the Western and Southern counties all the way into Galveston.

A few reports of funnels clouds just after Noon along the Northwest side of town near the Grand Parkway. Fortunately the funnel lifted and no reports of damage were reported.  A few of our viewers reported some sporatic small hail and wind damage, but most was minor like this small tree.

A weak cool front should approach the area early this evening and finally push through all the way into Galveston by late tonight or early morning. The overall impact will be to reduce humidity values for our viewers to the Northwest of the metro area. The heat returns quickly on the heals of southwesterly flow through the weekend with low to mid 90s the norm next week.
