KEVIN ROTH: Already over 11 inches of rain this month, that is more than six inches above what we average for this month for this time of year. On the year now, we are above our average. At Hobby Airport, 10 inches this month, five inches more than what we average. Look at some of these other locations. College Station, another month where you've just seen huge rainfall amounts compared to what is normal, but there is a rainfall deficit there. Same goes for Galveston where this month we've picked up over 6 and 1/2 inches of rain, well above our normal of 2 and 1/2 inches there, but look at the rainfall departure. We're still in a 3-inch rainfall deficit in Galveston. Now because of all of the rain that we picked up recently, there's no drought issues anywhere across southeast Texas, and there's still more rain to come. So enjoy these next couple of days with lower end rain chances. Because as we start to move into the middle and end of the week, rain chances jumping up yet again, we get in another very active pattern. And it's not just here for the middle and end of next week, this is your long range outlook here. This goes from next weekend all the way into the middle of the following week. And you look at Houston here, right there in that area where our probability of above normal rainfall is at 70% for even next week-- so we're talking about another stretch here we're going to be dealing with some rain.
