TEXAS -

Much of Texas finds itself in a rainy cycle, with heavy rain bringing a flash-flood watch to northern and northeastern Texas.
    
After a soggy Wednesday in North and Central Texas, East Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast was to have a second day of rain on Thursday.
    
The National Weather Service said the sun was expected to shine over Texas through the weekend, but the state was expected to get off to a wet start to the week Monday.
