At this time there are no confirmed reports of flooding in structures. The main concern with this morning’s storms and downpours is isolated street flooding, especially in problematic spots.

It looks like we will receive two rounds of rain today. One in the very early morning and then another in the warmth of the afternoon. The major concern will be ponding and water in the roadway. Stay weather aware and check the radar if you must get on the roads.

Houston 7-day forecast

Rain chances will diminish but not completely go away this weekend as dust from the Saharan Desert arrives. As the dust moves in, skies may become a bit hazy.

The good news with the dust, which is over the Atlantic Ocean and moving into the Caribbean Sea soon, has helped keep the tropics calm, so no hurricanes and tropical storms anywhere in sight, likely for the rest of this month. Tropical Storm Dolly, is the exception, since it formed in the Northern Atlantic Ocean but will pose no threat to land.
