Heat humidity and pop up showers could return today. With moisture in place, we could see a repeat of the isolated showers and t-storms as we saw yesterday. Highs today will again reach the lower 90's. By Saturday and through the start of next week, we will see the moisture out and hot temps on the rise. Look for mid and upper 90's by Sunday and Monday.
Texas deputy killed in wreck, suspect detained
HOUSTON (AP) -- An off-duty Harris County sheriff's deputy has been killed in a traffic accident that's led to another driver charged with intoxication manslaughter.
Houston police say a vehicle driven by 23-year-old Andres Munos-Munos allegedly ran a red light and hit Sgt. Dwayne Polk's personal truck.
The 47-year-old deputy died at the scene early Sunday. Polk was in uniform and officials believe he was driving home following an off-duty job.
Munos-Munos appeared in court Monday and was ordered held without bond. Details weren't immediately available on an attorney for Munos-Munos, who suffered minor injuries in the wreck.
Polk had been with the sheriff's office for 16 years.
