As expected, higher moisture levels are pushing into the Houston region from the Gulf of Mexico today. This will lead to storms across the area, possibly widespread, as temperatures warm into the 80s later this morning. This provides the potential for a quick pickup of 1 to 3 inches of rain for a few areas, and depending upon the rainfall rates we could see some temporary street flooding.
The bottom line is that if you plan to be out and about from around noon to 6pm, check the radar, and be weather-aware. We’re not expecting widespread problems, but you should definitely be prepared for storms to pop up quickly, and drop a lot of rain. Monday will probably be similar (although with less coverage) before rain chances begin to dial down significantly on Tuesday.
