HOUSTON - We are starting off our weekend with showers and storms. The combination of rich tropical moisture and a storm system could produce 1-3 inches of rain in some spots this weekend.
A Flash Flood Watch was just canceled for our area, since we are now seeing breaks from the rain.
The rain first moved into Houston on Friday. A half-inch to an inch of rain fell across the area.
There are a lot of outdoor activities to start our weekend, and many spots will likely be muddy today. The rain started falling early this morning and we could see a few showers and storms through 7 p.m. Rain amounts Saturday will average 1 to 3 inches.
Parts of Jackson and Matagorda counties saw more than an inch and a half of rain Saturday morning, which is why the National Weather Service issued an Areal Flood Advisory for those areas this morning. Small stream flooding is possible.
Temperatures will stay in the 70s with afternoon highs topping out in the upper 70s with overcast skies, because of the rain today.
Sunday is a little tricky. Some models have the rain lasting though noon, which of course would make for a damp Texans tailgating. It will be cloudy Sunday with the rain moving east the rest of the afternoon. Even if Sunday starts off wet with a few lingering showers, the rest of the day looks nice and dry with highs in the low 80s. Go Texans!
Be safe, and stay dry!
