Showers, storms return from Texas to Louisiana this weekend

Numerous showers and a few storms will develop Saturday and continue on Sunday

HOUSTON – Moisture streaming in from the Pacific Ocean will produce showers and storms from Texas to Louisiana on Saturday.

Numerous showers and a few storms will develop over western and southern Texas on Saturday morning and then spread northeastward into eastern and northern Texas during the afternoon. 

An inch or two of rain is expected through the weekend, with the highest amounts near the Houston metro area. Showers will also spread eastward into Louisiana on Saturday night.

The rain could slow down travel along the Interstate 10 corridor from Houston to areas west of New Orleans.

Showers will gradually taper off through the day Sunday, ending first in southeastern Texas in the morning, then in Louisiana during the afternoon.
