The KHOU 11 Weather Team is closely monitoring the potential for more heavy rain and moderate flooding – especially as we head into Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
THURSDAY – 70% chance of storms and rain in Houston area, mostly scattered in the morning and becoming heavier and more widespread in the evening. High water spots possible due to saturated ground conditions.
FRIDAY – 60% chance of thunderstorms continues in the early-morning hours, becoming more scattered in the afternoon. Friday evening and the overnight hours heading into Saturday the showers will become more widespread – continuing our potential to see more flooding. We’ll have to watch and wait to see which area watersheds get the most rain and which creeks and bayous threaten to flood again.
SATURDAY- 90% chance for rain all day with thunderstorms. Flood risk continues from the morning through the afternoon. Thunderstorms are possible in the evening, becoming partly cloudy in the late evening heading into Sunday.
SUNDAY- 20% rain chance, high of 82 – calmer conditions for Mother’s Day with the flood risk finally dissipating.
NEXT WEEK- Scattered showers early in the week with another chance for storms Tuesday.
