HOUSTON -- “The latest rain event changed the landscape across Texas -- really dousing the drought,” said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist David Paul. “This was very important and a very good rain.”

The continuous rain on Wednesday made driving a problem, but it didn’t cause major flooding. The flood watch was cancelled Wednesday night.

There’s a new rain event building off the coast. It will move in-land and could bring with it three-quarters to one-inch of rain overnight into Thursday for the coastal and central counties.

With low-hanging clouds Wednesday evening, temperatures should hover in the 60s for the next couple of hours. There won’t be a major cool down, and temps will eventually dip into the 50s.

Areas to the northwest of Houston will be cool, cloudy and damp overnight. From Houston down to the coast, rain conditions are likely.

On Thursday, highs will near 70 with a mix of clouds and sun. Conditions will be similar on Friday.

As for the weekend, it’ll be chilly, breezy and wet.
