Severe Weather Expected Through Monday Afternoon

What is the danger?

A band of strong thunderstorms will move through Harris County beginning overnight Sunday with the most hazardous weather - heavy rains, strong winds and possibly hail or tornadoes - likely to occur beginning Monday morning and into the afternoon.

What you should do:

Numerous watches and warnings may be issued so it is important to monitor local media and the National Weather Service for up-to-date forecasts on Sunday night and Monday morning.

The timing of these storms means it is likely to impact the Monday morning drive time. Check Houston TranStar’s real-time traffic map for road conditions before leaving home.

Heavy rain can cause scattered street flooding and ponding. Driving into flood water is the leading cause of flood-related death. Don’t be a victim! Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
