HOUSTON – A slow-moving front is moving in and around the Houston area Sunday, bringing another half-inch to one inch of expected rainfall to Southeast Texas, according to KHOU 11 New Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

Two-to- four inches of rain fell in northern Harris County overnight and two-to-three inches fell in Greater Houston so, added with today’s rainfall, we should look out for some flash flooding in certain parts.

As for today’s temperatures, lows kicked off in the lower-70s and highs were expected to top off below 90 degrees. As the temps heat up this afternoon, we can expect the thunder kick in.

There is very little concern for flooding in bayous and creeks because the water levels were low before the rainfall began.

After a cool front moves in this evening, conditions will start drying out and we can expect cooler, less humid air for Monday. Rain chances will return to the forecast as another upper-level disturbance sweeps into the region Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures will return to their August levels of the low-90s through the end of the work week.

Tropical weather will also be a concern as Tropical Storm Isaac could be brewing by Wednesday near the eastern Caribbean.
