HOUSTON – A cool front will mix with tropical moisture to bring a lot of rain to southeast Texas on Friday and Saturday.
There’s an 80-percent chance for rain Friday and an 80-percent chance Saturday.
“We are looking at widespread three- to four-inch rain totals through Saturday,” said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner. “As far as seriousness goes, this is the closest thing we’ve come to a tropical system this year as far as rainfall goes, so you’ll need to be careful on the roadways.”
Some localized street flooding is possible late Friday into 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.
