AFTER IMELDA: Hot, humid, quiet weekend ahead

Steamy Sunday coming

Today's Outlook:

HOUSTON – A finally quiet start to what has been a very busy week, we're looking to get back to a more typical late summer forecast. Partly cloudy for the rest of the afternoon with temperatures running in the upper 80s, low 90s. Be ready for a warm evening well into the low 80s if you're stepping out.

We'll  see some light streamer showers move inland, nothing serious or flooding. Later this evening, the occasional thunderstorms and downpours that are out there will die down and we'll be left with a partly cloudy night

Overnight, because the ground is so wet, we'll carry a chance for some patchy fog outside of metro Houston but showers should be gone. More of the same for the official last day of summer tomorrow, hot and muggy with temperatures in the low 90s, feeling more like the mid 90s.

Areas of flood concern:

Flooding issues are still ongoing along the East Fork of the San Jacinto river around Humble and Kingwood. Moderate flooding is currently occurring in Huffman as well from Cedar Bayou. River levels will continue to slowly fall through the weekend.

There are still some areas of concern with certain rivers and bayous out of their banks. The following areas are still seeing ongoing flooding: 

- Cedar Bayou at US 90: Still 4 feet over bank 
- East Fork of San Jacinto: Locations at Rio Villa & US 90 are both 4 feet over bank
- Minor flooding is occurring on the Trinity River in southern Liberty county, and Peach Creek

All bayous have crested and are slowly falling, the East Fork locations will slowly recede over the next 24 hours while locations along the Trinity River will fall below flood levels over the next two days
