Good evening from Click2Houston.com.

Tuesday was also National Catfish Day. Did you know that catfish, named for their prominent barbels that resemble cat whiskers, are nocturnal and don’t have scales? They’re also among the most consumed fish in the U.S.

Now, let’s wrap up your day with a check on the forecast and a look at the top headlines.

Weather

The last 48 hours dropped 1 to 3 inches of rain with a few higher totals (Tomball saw almost 5 inches) but no serious flood issues. The heaviest rain Tuesday was right at the coast and offshore. Tonight, light rain continues with more rain Wednesday. A bit of a dry out for Thursday and Friday, but rain chances go back up for the weekend. Check Frank's full forecast for more.
