HOUSTON – Our third cold front of the week will ooze through the area Friday and Saturday, bringing much higher chances for rain. Over the two-day period, rainfall accumulations could reach three to five inches.

We can use a good soaking rain to reverse our current trend toward drought, but we don’t want the threat of flash flooding. Based on current data, flash flooding is not likely, but isolated minor street flooding is possible with some of the heavier downpours we see. While most of the rain early will be absorbed, Saturday could produce some trouble if the same areas are hit with more heavy waves of rain early in the morning.

A weekend cold front will bring potentially soaking rainfall to Southeast Texas, followed by much cooler weather for next week.
