Houston should see a mostly quiet night, storm-wise

As anticipated, the greater Houston area radar has quieted down considerably with the loss of daytime heating. And thank goodness for that.

During the overnight hours we can’t rule out development of additional showers and thunderstorms, but we’d expect these to be fairly scattered and are not particularly concerned about additional, prolonged heavy rain. We just do not anticipate anything too organized getting going—although Lord knows Imelda has surprised us. Rain chances are probably a little higher to the east of Interstate 45 tonight, but again we don’t expect accumulations to be more than about a quarter of an inch where rain does fall.

A mostly quiet radar at 9pm CT Thursday is a beautiful thing. (kktv.com)

We are well beyond the worst of Imelda, but we’re likely to see a decent chance of scattered storms on Friday, with chances diminishing further into the weekend. We should see mostly sunny days with highs in the upper 80s on Saturday and Sunday, which sounds pretty darn nice after all we’ve been through. Matt will have a comprehensive update in the morning.

      I didn’t think my comment went through the first time. Sorry for the repeat…I guess I just like you guys two times more than anyone else! =)

      Really appreciate all your hard work guys. I knew when I read your update today that if Space City was warning us of what was to come that it should be taken seriously. I stayed home and was glad I did. You guys are rock solid.

    Hey guys. I just wanted to thank both of you for keeping me and all of the people that suffered through this unexpected monster up to date and giving us the latest information. You guys did a knockout job as you always do and quite frankly should be given a medal…or at least a trip to the White House. While we only managed to pick up .28 inches Storm total…it obviously was a far cry from what most everyone received on this blog…thank you for everything. My thoughts and Prayers go out to all of you who battled through Imelda and will now have to start the painstaking clean up. God Bless you all and hope you all ok.

    Thank you. What will the commute to the Pearland area from North Houston look like tomorrow morning via 610 or 45?

    Given the 1 – 5 scale you have created, what does Imelda rank so far? I heard “Allison lite” earlier. Is that the same assessment?

      Guys – First off, thanks for A1 job as always! That said, how concerned are you about high pressure system parked over the southeast that would most likely veer anything tropical off the gulf towards our neck of the woods? Usually is the opposite scenario with big High over Texas pushing everything towards eastern gulf.

      If true, not only would any organized disturbances be a concern, but also just strong – and rain laden – waves.

      Thoughts?
