Forecasters predict more flooding from the Brazos River in the Houston area as the waters from recent storms continue to work downriver.

The National Weather Service says the river near the suburb of Rosharon will remain in moderate flood stage throughout Saturday and should climb to nearly 51 feet, about 8 feet above flood stage.

The suburb of Richmond should rise to a moderate flood stage Saturday afternoon but stop shy of major flooding Monday before receding.

Flooding in the San Jacinto and Colorado rivers are expected to soon subside. The San Jacinto River north of Houston remains in a major flood stage, which should end late Saturday. The Colorado River at Wharton peaked Saturday just shy of major flooding and is predicted to exit flood stage by the evening.

One of the Dallas area's traffic arteries will remain closed for up to a week as transportation officials pump out floodwaters.

A depression on Loop 12 beneath the stacked Interstate 30 and a Union Pacific rail overpasses flooded during a downpour early Friday, snarling traffic.

The Texas Department of Transportation has brought in heavy-duty pumps to draw the water from the depression into the nearby Trinity River.

For now, the freeway is closed in both directions between Interstate 30 in Dallas and Texas 356 in Irving.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for portions of Central and South Texas, which could see as much as five inches of rain Saturday if a storm system stalls over the area.

Lead Forecaster Scott Overpeck in Houston says between 1 and 2 inches of rain is projected in the greater Houston area Saturday afternoon and evening.

He says the storms will likely be slow-moving. If it stalls out, some parts of the already-waterlogged area could receive between 4 and 5 inches in a few hours.

Additional rainfall could cause more flooding along the Brazos River and the city's bayous.

May storms have already resulted in at least 29 deaths, with 25 of those in Texas. At least 11 people are still missing in Texas.

Dallas police say a man's body was recovered from standing water after storms flooded parts of the metro.

That brings the death toll to 29 people who've been killed in storms that began in Texas and Oklahoma over Memorial Day weekend — 25 in Texas alone. Eleven were still missing Saturday.

Dallas police spokesman Juan Fernandez said Saturday that officers found a man, who hasn't been identified, floating in the water Friday.

Fernandez said the body has been sent to the county medical examiner's office to determine the official cause of death.

Storms dumped as much as 7 inches across the area Thursday night.

The other Dallas-area death discovered Friday was a man who drowned in his truck after it was swept into a culvert in the suburb of Mesquite.

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is seeing another round of heavy rain.

The National Weather Service extended a flash flood warning from 8:45 a.m. Saturday to 11:45 a.m. for Dallas, Johnson and Tarrant counties. There were no immediate reports of rescues Saturday morning.

Rivers around the Dallas area have all swelled in the last week.

Before Saturday's rain, the National Weather Service said 16.07 inches of rain fell across the Dallas area in May, easily eclipsing a 1982 record of 13.66.

Flood concerns are lingering in Texas, with more storms in the forecast.

At least 28 people have been killed in storms that began pummeling Texas and Oklahoma over Memorial Day weekend. Twenty-four of the deaths have been in Texas alone. Eleven were still missing early Saturday.

Rivers and lakes around Houston, San Antonio and Dallas have all swelled. And forecasters are predicting more rain this weekend.

The Colorado River in Wharton and the Brazos and San Jacinto rivers near Houston are the main areas of concern as floodwaters move from North and Central Texas downstream toward the Gulf of Mexico.

Forecasters said the Colorado River at Wharton could crest on Saturday, causing major flooding in the community 60 miles southwest of Houston.

President Barack Obama has signed a disaster declaration for Texas after severe flooding this week.

The White House said Obama declared that he ordered federal aid to supplement other recovery efforts in the area affected by severe weather since May 4.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had earlier requested a presidential disaster declaration to get federal help for the counties affected.

Obama's action makes federal funding available to affected individuals in Harris, Hays, and Van Zandt counties.

Funding also is available to governments and some nonprofits on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and repairs in Cooke, Gaines, Grimes, Harris, Hays, Navarro, and Van Zandt counties.
