HOUSTON — An upper-level storm system that dumped several inches of rain on the Houston area earlier this week is making a comeback.

Street flooding may be possible through Saturday evening as most of Houston’s bayous and creeks are still swollen. Some parts of town could get at least three more inches of rain.

According to event organizers, a temporary evacuation order was issued for the Free Press Summer Fest at Eleanor Tinsley Park due to the weather conditions. A large storm cell moving through the area brought rain and the threat of lightning.

Flood Advisory was issued for central Harris County until 4 p.m. Another round of storms near Crosby could drift back towards the Summer Fest.

There’s a 70-percent rain chance on Saturday with a forecast high of 86 degrees.

Another storm brought heavy rain the Humble area.

Earlier Saturday, a group of showers moved along the Gulf Freeway towards Galveston before heading out to the Gulf. Viewers sent in photos of a pair water spouts that form as part of the day's storms.

The heaviest showers are expected to dissipate by the evening.

Sunday will be slightly nicer with a 40-percent chance for rain. Next week the skies will begin to clear out as our afternoon temperatures reach 90 degrees for the first time in over a month.

Our overnight lows will remain muggy and in the low-70s for the foreseeable future.
