HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Heavy downpours were very much apart of metro Houston mid-day Sunday, with some areas seeing one to two inches of rain or more.

Other areas such as Rosenberg and Sugar Land as well as several parts of southeastern Montgomery County, San Jacinto County, and Polk County also reported flooding on city streets.

Coastal counties did not escape the wrath of Sunday’s weather, as several pockets of very heavy rain were reported with several inches of still water noted in many spots.

Sunday’s showers and storms came in from the west, ahead of a low pressure system. Both collided with a sea breeze front making the perfect ingredients for heavy and loud thunderstorm development over the city and much of the greater Houston metropolitan area.

Although many of the storms did not reach severe limits, there were some power outages reported in areas such as Pearland. On Sunday, the National Weather Service did not issue severe thunderstorm warnings, but there were flood advisories issued for parts of Harris, Montgomery, Brazoria, Liberty, San Jacinto and Polk Counties, due to heavy flooding and high standing water.
