HOUSTON – Scattered showers continue to move through the Houston area Monday afternoon bringing some much needed rain, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.
The rainfall is a result of moisture from a weakening Tropical Depression Ingrid streaming north through the Gulf.
The showers are moving from east to west at 10-15 mph with some areas seeing wind gusts up to 40 mph. A flood advisory was issued earlier in the afternoon for central Harris County as the largest showers moved through the Houston metro area.
There is still a 20 percent chance of rain this evening for the communities west of the metro area.
Overnight lows will continue to be in the mid-70s.
For the next seven days the chance for scattered rain continues, but our afternoon highs will drop a few degrees later this week.
