HOUSTON – There is still a change for some lingering scattered showers Saturday morning after overnight heavy rains brought localized flooding to parts of Houston, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson said.

There is a 30 percent chance for rain on Saturday as a few showers move through the Houston area from southwest to northeast. However, by 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon most of the isolated showers should clear the area.

The overnight showers brought 1.5- 3.5 inches of rainfall to parts of the Greater Houston area with the exception of Cleveland, which received 5 inches of rain.

After Friday night’s cold front, expect to a nice drop in temperatures with highs in the low-80s this afternoon especially after the clouds start to break apart.

There is also a shift in the winds which will now come from the north, lowering the level of humidity in the Houston area.

Saturday will serve as sort of a transitional day for weather in our area. Come Sunday, expect to gorgeous weather for the first day of autumn with only a 20 percent chance for rain and lows in the upper-60s and highs in the mid-80s.
