Houston weather: Heavy rain showers decrease Wednesday evening

Flood Watch is ending tonight but the ground remains saturated and any additional rain could lead to a few more flooding problems. So still exercise caution as you travel around the area and avoid any flooded roads from recent heavy rainfall. Some parts of SE Texas picked up anywhere from 2-7" of rain over the last 24 hours! There will be a few showers and storms around, especially early tonight. But overall, coverage of rain tonight and the next few days will be much lower. Threat for excessive rain is decreasing and we should get more dry time for Thursday & Friday with only a 30% chance for showers and storms. Temperatures are heating up with plenty of humidity. Plan on warm and steamy weather for Mother's day weekend with spotty storms around, especially during the afternoon and evening. Unsettled pattern will keep going through the middle of next week.
