Some street flooding was reported in the Katy area and in parts of SW Houston early this morning.

HOUSTON — After several flash flood warnings and a flash flood watch, the worst of this morning’s weather has pushed to areas east of Houston.

All flash flood watches and warnings have expired for the time being. There is, however, a river flood warning for South Mayde Creek near Greenhouse Road and for the Addicks Reservoir. Minor flooding is forecast, says the National Weather Service. Persons along these streams will want to stay alert, however, as anymore downpours could worsen the situation.

Across Houston the rest of the day, scattered showers and storms are still possible into the early afternoon. And a chance for rain lingers through the weekend.

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, was the exception, since it formed in the Northern Atlantic Ocean, but will pose no threat to land.
