HOUSTON — Happy Columbus Day! Do you have the day off? Or is it just a normal back to work... back to school Monday? Either way- rain chances really increase by the afternoon. Keep the umbrellas handy all throughout the day. A quick half inch of rain is possible for everyone but there could be higher amounts where a few strong storms set up. Just keep that in mind as you are out and about midday and afternoon.
