Q&A: When can you expect the rain to clear out


HOUSTON – Heavy rain drenched some of our dads for Father’s Day as thunderstorms rumbled through the area for much of Sunday afternoon and overnight. The rain is expected to last through the morning commute. 

Wake up to thunder, lightning and gusty winds last night?

Strong storms that caused damage in the Dallas/Fort Worth area blasted through Southeast Texas overnight into the predawn hours of Monday.  Although the strongest storms were offshore by the morning commute, steady rain and leftover issues have created a messy Monday morning drive.


Is there more rain to come?

The heaviest rain has wrapped up for Monday, but stray afternoon showers or a stray thunderstorm are still possible. The atmosphere has stabilized significantly behind Sunday night’s storms, not leaving much juice for late day storms. With that said, Monday's heat could trigger stray showers but storm chances are low at 10 to 20%. Be prepared for a humid and very warm afternoon in the upper 80s

Will it rain again this week?

Weather conditions will continue to quiet down through the work week. Afternoon showers are possible Tuesday afternoon before rain chances leave and the heat takes over. Temperatures will hit the mid-90s by Wednesday and, with high humidity, feels-like temperatures will hit 106 to 109 degrees. It will be important to keep in mind heat safety tips this week. Remember to stay hydrated, limit outdoor activities during the afternoon and take plenty of breaks while working outside.
