NWS meteorologist Tawnya Evans says Harris County, home to Houston, is recording about half an inch (1 centimeter) of rainfall each hour early Tuesday, and that areas east of there are seeing much more. Now, areas that got between 20-30 inches are purple, and areas hit with more than 30 inches are in light purple.

Sometime Tuesday or early Wednesday, parts of the Houston region will probably break the almost 40-year-old US record for the biggest rainfall from a tropical system — 48 inches (120 centimeters) — set by Tropical Storm Amelia in 1978 in Texas, meteorologists said. Any number of Texans along the middle Texas coast and inland areas are living through this extraordinary event and the disheartening news on Monday night is that the region can expect an additional 25 inches of rain in the next day or so. According to NOAA's data, the wettest tropical cyclone record still belongs to Hurricane Hiki, which developed off the coast of Hawaii in August 1950 and dropped 52 inches of rain. The previous daily record was about 8 inches of rain. August is already its wettest month on record, as well. Around the same time at a different location near Houston ― Clear Creek at Interstate 45 ― NWS measured 48.64 inches of rain.
