HOUSTON – Heavy rains poured down in the Houston area on Friday evening and flooding is possible through Saturday morning.

“Friday we received over a month’s worth of rainfall across some parts of Harris County in the last six hours,” according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

There’s an 80-percent chance for rain on Saturday.

“We are looking at widespread three- to five-inch rain totals through Saturday,” Gomez said.

Some localized street flooding is possible early Saturday.

Our daytime highs through the weekend will only reach the mid- to upper-80s.

By Sunday the skies should be a lot clearer, leaving us with daytime highs in the low-90s and overnight lows in the low-70s early next week.

Looking to the southwestern part of the Gulf of Mexico, we are still watching a disturbance that will likely bring more rain to Mexico and portions of Texas, although the National Hurricane Center has reduced the chance that it will develop into a depression.
