The rain moved in Friday night, and a strong line of storms tracked across the Houston area Saturday morning.

The rain was heavy, but ended well before many revelers headed to Galveston for Mardi Gras.

"There could be some pockets of light rain in the afternoon as moisture wraps around the back side of the system, but the heaviest rain should be moving out by noon," said ABC13 Chief Meteorologist Tim Heller.

After Saturday's rain, skies were expected to clear out and sunshine was expected on Sunday after some morning fog burns off. Clouds return Monday with a chance of rain on Tuesday. After that, expect clear skies and above average temperatures.
