HOUSTON (KIAH) — A break from the rain Monday, but more storms are likely on the way Tuesday and Wednesday. At times, the rain could be heavy, and we also can’t rule out a few severe thunderstorms in the mix.

The next widespread round of rain ignites to our west on Monday, then arrives in Greater Houston Tuesday morning, potentially having an impact on the morning commute. Rain could linger midday, then should taper off during the mid to late afternoon.

As of now, it looks like another round arrives late Tuesday night, then one or two more rounds on Wednesday. On average, rain totals over the next few days will be one to three inches, but some areas could get more.

The Storm Prediction Center outlines various parts of Texas for potential severe storms during this wet stretch. In Houston, the severe odds are relatively low, but there’s enough instability for some storms to get briefly strong with intense wind being the primary threat.
