We continue to remain in a Flash Flood Watch, but conditions continue to improve. The forecasts are showing peak rainfall volumes across the region are showing between 1 to 3 inches with most our region, including Fort Bend County, seeing closer to 0.5 to 1 inches through Sunday morning.
A few showers and storms have already made it through the greater Houston area. Rainfall totals for the most part have been as forecasted with Fort Bend County receiving less than 1 inch since this morning. Overall, we should see less activity and with Sunday and Monday showing sunny skies, we should have a good chance to dry out and let things drain down over the next few days.
Overnight the Brazos River through Richmond continued to recede slightly faster than the forecasts falling out of Moderate Flood Stage around 6 PM last night. We continue to see gages upstream of Richmond rise with rainfall that occurred in the upper portions of the watershed; however, we should continue to see the Brazos River through Richmond fall. Based on the current forecast we should fall below Moderate Flood Stage by Monday morning.
