Weather Watch: Heavy rain possibility to persist

Posted:

A combination of moist, unstable air from the Gulf of Mexico and additional moisture coming in from the remnants of former Hurricane Odile to our west, should keep showers and thunderstorms around through the end of the week. Locally heavy rain will be possible in some areas, depending on where the showers and thunderstorms develop and rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches will be possible over all of Galveston County.
