Flash Flood Watch extended until 7 p.m. Wednesday

Street flooding still an issue

HOUSTON – The National Weather Service has extended a Flash Flood Watch for most of Southeast Texas until 7 p.m. Wednesday. Rain chances will go up through the morning. Be prepared for wet roads during the morning commute. Pockets of heavy rain will make lunch time a wash out for most.


Counties under the watch include:  Fort Bend, Jackson, Matagorda, Brazoria, Galveston, Liberty, Colorado, Austin, Waller, Harris, Chambers, Wharton, Walker, San Jacinto, Polk, Washington, Grimes Montgomery, and Burleson counties. 

Keep a check on traffic here.

Isolated street flooding will be possible through Wednesday evening in areas where heavy rain falls.  Creeks that are already running high could experience flash flooding if heavy rain falls for an extended period of time.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy rainfall that could lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding can be a life-threatening situation, especially if you're in a car.  Stay off the road while flash flooding is occurring.

Conditions will begin improve beginning Thursday, but scattered afternoon showers and storms will continue in the region through the weekend and well into next week.
