HOUSTON — Recent rains have erased the drought deficit for the Houston area after one of the wettest Mays on record, according KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.
The Houston area received 11.70 inches of rainfall during the last month, which ranks eighth on the list for May. We now have a surplus of more than ½ inch.
While the area is unlikely to see the same amount of rain from the last few days, there is still a 40 percent chance for rainfall Sunday.
Temperatures will start in the low-70s for Sunday before warming up the 86 in the afternoon. Sunday also marks the official start of the hurricane season, so we will be keeping an eye on the tropics for any developing systems.
This 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.
