HOUSTON — A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until Wednesday for most of the Houston area.

Included in the watch are Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Jackson, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, Washington, and Wharton counties.

A Flood Warning is in effect until 7:36 a.m. Thursday for Jackson and Wharton counties. A Flood Warning is in effect until 9 a.m. Friday for Brazoria County.

Some parts of town have received six inches of rain in the last 24 hours.

By 9:30 a.m. the worst of Tuesday’s weather had moved into the Gulf, but KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner says light to moderate rainfall will continue into our evening hours.

A chance for rain returns Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with scattered showers on Saturday, too.

Expect to see an 80 percent chance for rain on Wednesday with some of the storms bringing heavy rainfall during the morning commute.

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.
