Showers and thunderstorms will be developing over the Gulf Saturday morning and then spreading inland throughout the morning. Storms will be slow moving and capable of a quick 1 to 2 inches of rainfall and some training is possible. Isolated totals could reach 5 inches between early Saturday morning and Sunday. Street flooding should be the main threat.
Rain chances will continue on Sunday though lower rain chances with the greater rainfall totals probably occurring west of the Houston Metro and into the northern counties.
Easterly winds today through Monday will lead to elevated tide levels and stronger rip currents. Any flooding along the Highway 87 corridor should be short lived during high tide times.
Tropical Storm Kirk is meandering westward over the coming 24 hours and is beginning to encounter shear and should move into increasing shear Saturday with it likely dissipating on Saturday posing no threat to the Gulf or Southeast Texas.
A failure is not always a mistake; it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying. -B.F. Skinner
