KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson says the heavy downpours will move off the coast by 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, and we'll get a break after that.

A chance for scattered rain will continue the rest of this week, however.

Sunday things will finally start to dry out.

Our daytime temps this week will be in the upper-70s and low-80s thanks to the rainfall. Next week we’ll get back into the upper-80s and low-90s as sunshine returns.
