    Rainfall of 8-10 inches has inundated areas northwest of Houston over the past several days, leading to more flooding woes.

    Houston Hobby Airport has received more than the normal rain for the entire month of July over the course of five days.


    Several roads across Harris, Montgomery, Waller and Jefferson counties are impassible due to high water.

    A stationary front draped across Texas continues to ignite rounds of torrential downpours across eastern parts of the state. Unfortunately, it appears that the rounds of rain will continue straight through the weekend.

    The slow-moving thunderstorms are dumping rain at a rate of up to an inch per hour, threatening to produce runoff very quickly. The ground is already saturated from the past several days, adding to the serious flood risk.

    There is potential for additional flooding rainfall through the weekend.
