HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Heavy rain moved through Houston in the late morning hours of Wednesday while a flash flood watch continued for the majority of southeast Texas.

Rain made motorists careful and vigilant on the roads Wednesday while the National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Watch until 12 a.m. Thursday. The following counties are under the watch: Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Jackson, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, Washington and Wharton.

Heavy rain coupled with flooding is expected well into Thursday as temperatures remained in the upper 60s for Wednesday.

The greater Houston area has the potential of seeing one to two inches of rain accumulation during this most recent severe weather event. As of noon Wednesday, several areas north and northwest of Houston saw more rain; Tomball reportedly received two inches and Brenham reported more than three inches of rain. Some areas could get as much as seven inches of rain.

Sunny skies are expected to return on Thursday and Friday with temperatures sitting well into the upper 60s.
