DISCUSSION: Attached below is the truly incredible evolution of the recent flooding event which has unfolded down in the city of Houston, Texas. Note how there were several rounds of intense convection which occurred during the course of the heavy rainfall with rapidly building rainfall totals over a relatively short period of time. As seen all over the news and across the span of social media outlets, the flooding was devastating and extensive due to the persistent nature of the rainfall which is still continuing through part of today as well! Though the system which is responsible for this persistent, heavy rainfall will slowly pull away over the next couple of days, the floodwaters will take time to subside completely.
