Wharton County could see several inches of rain this week as storm waves continue to move through the area.
A weak cold front moving south late Tuesday is igniting thunderstorms along the frontal boundary.
“Widespread rainfall through (today) will average between one and three inches with isolated locations possibly receiving between three and five inches of rain,” Wharton County Emergency Management Coordinator Andy Kirkland said Tuesday.
High winds are expected as well in Wharton County.
The forecast calls for rain to continue throughout the week with lower than normal high temperatures. Skies are expected to clear Saturday.
