Tropical Storm Imelda is now the 5th-wettest tropical cyclone on record in the Lower 48 states

It's another cool one tonight, but highs are near 80 tomorrow.

The Weather Service website keeps breaking.

It’s been a wild 24 hours in the tropics. Humberto hit Bermuda with 130 mph winds, parts of Texas are treading water after three feet of rain, and Jerry became a hurricane.

Mother Nature has turned off the spigot, and the landscape has shifted from lush and green to barren and brown.

You just have to enjoy a day as gift-wrapped as this one.

We're slightly below normal for temperatures tomorrow.

Since 1970, Houston's average yearly rainfall has ticked up from 49 inches to about 57.

We may be in the heart of hurricane season, but this is still a little extreme.

This spectacle occurs just twice a year, near the spring and fall equinox.

A widespread 5 to 10 inches, with localized amounts closing in on or exceeding 2 feet, is likely.

A spectacular stretch of September weather coming up, albeit quite warm by the weekend.

The president’s science adviser is a meteorologist, but he did not attend the storm briefings.

Get ready for a really nice day.

Among the customers? The Cincinnati Reds and the National Weather Service.

A flash flood watch has been issued for the Houston metro area.

Lower humidity and comfortable warmth dominate the rest of the week, with hot but not humid weather returning this weekend.

No more 90s, for at least a few days.

The Northern Hemisphere had its hottest summer on record, tying with 2016, as signs of a warming world continue to emerge.

Serious amounts of rain in Texas are possible in the middle of this week, potentially leading to flooding.
