After-school activities are canceled around the Houston area.
The cold front that has been the focus and trigger for the storms is slowly moving east. That means that the chance of thunderstorms with heavy rain occurring over already flooded areas has gone down for the rest of the day.

Rain chances should fall late this week. The air blowing in behind the rain is from the Pacific, not the Arctic so don't expect temperatures to cool much.
