It appears Mother Nature has one more bout of rain in store for Houston this afternoon as a line of fairly strong storms moves east across central Texas toward our area. Pretty much all of Houston got between one and two inches of rain yesterday and I wouldn't be surprised if we added another half inch this afternoon and evening.
The good/bad news is that the rain should clear out after midnight as a cool front -- yes, we are still getting those -- finally pushes through. Expect substantially cooler temperatures tomorrow with highs only reaching the mid 60s and lows in the 40s. Things will warm up quickly, and the weekend should be nice with highs in the 70s.
There is a possibility we could see another decent chance of rain late next week ahead of another approaching front. April and May tend to be fairly wet months for Houston and we need it to help counteract the impact of the persistent drought conditions we continue to face.
Hopefully, the rain will limit itself to weekdays and leave the weekends alone.
