After waiting, and waiting - the slow-moving disturbance in West Texas finally headed for Houston late Sunday night bringing the widespread totals you see above.  Good news for thirsty lawns, but of course, a pain for the Monday morning commute.  That system is still spinning away from us this afternoon, sparking a few showers in Liberty and San Jacinto Counties.  However, it is doubtful we'll see another round of rain tonight.

Here's a wider view of the Monday totals from our WeatherBug rain gauge network:

Now, we await the arrival of a cool front Tuesday that will squash any remaining rain chances, but we could see increased cloud cover.  After the front passes late Tuesday night, get set to turn off the A/C and enjoy some delightful mornings.  Wednesday and Thursday morning we could wake to crisp temperatures in the 50s and 60s.  By the way, fall "officially" begins Saturday at 9:49 am so this change is right on time.
