Will Tuesday be as wet as Monday?
It's certainly possible. Another disturbance will cross the area Tuesday morning. Another wave will move through Tuesday evening.
When will the heaviest rain fall?
The greatest concern for flooding from heavy rain will happen Wednesday afternoon and night. Street and creek flooding will be likely then. And we'll really need to watch the bayous during that time since the heavy rain could fall for several hours..
When will rain chances come to an end?
Moisture will still be sticking around keeping rain chances in the forecast into the weekend. We should finally get a break on Sunday.
