HOUSTON -- We’re seeing some scattered showers develop along the coast Tuesday evening, but the conditions are not severe. Much of the area saw light to moderate showers Tuesday night.

Rain totals Tuesday put Houston ahead for the year.

There is a 100 percent chance for rain on Wednesday.

Thunderstorms are developing across West and Central Texas. This is good news for drought. This line of thunderstorms will move in our director towards daybreak. The storm system will last through midday, and it could cause some flooding.

The Houston-area will likely see one to two inches of rain through Wednesday afternoon. But, there is still a threat for flooding rain and some areas to get four to seven inches. The flooding threat lasts until about 4:00 p.m. Wednesday.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 12 a.m. Thursday morning for Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Jackson, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, Washington and Wharton counties.
