Rain to taper off Monday afternoon with more stormy weather in Houston by late Tuesday.

Unsettled weather pattern to last for the rest of the week.

HOUSTON – After a very rainy morning in Houston, Monday afternoon will begin to provide relief.  Rain will taper off from west to east as the area of low pressure responsible for the wet weather moves into Louisiana.


The heaviest rain fell early Monday morning in Corpus Christi, where Doppler radar estimated over nine inches of accumulation.    As of mid-day, Houston had picked up less than two inches of rain in most places.

Expect more waves of rain throughout the week as our unsettled pattern continues.  Houston's next chance for heavy rain will come Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Additional rainfall totals of two to four inches are possible between Monday afternoon and the end of the week.

Afternoon temperatures will be warm, in the mid to upper 80s all week.  Humidity will be high, too, which will keep overnight temperatures mainly in the 70s.
