I've got .97 of an inch in the rain gage and with more thundershowers around, I may surpass an inch of rainfall for this event easily.

Not sure how much rain we got last night here in Stafford, but I did hear some rumbles of thunder in the wee hours of the morning. Loving these temps!

HGX has received several reports with two storm cells around Houston. One report if 1/2 inch hail in Sugarland. Watch the cell approaching NW Harris County now for some pea sized hail.

The rain is lingering longer than I expected and can also see the west TX dust all over the vehicles too.
