HOUSTON – Strong to severe thunderstorms continue to move across southeast Texas overnight.
The National Weather Service had placed most of the area under a Tornado Watch until midnight Friday.
Sixty mile per hour winds and quarter-sized hail was expected.
Some clusters drenched areas with 1-2 inches of rain in less than an hour, with some areas in northwest Harris and Montgomery counties under Areal Flood Advisories.
The broken cluster of storms will move across the metro Houston area through midnight, then east into Louisiana by 2 or 3 a.m.
The area will see a break in the storms until a cold front brings another round through early Saturday morning from around 5 to 8 a.m.
The Houston Rodeo shut down the carnival early due to the inclement weather.
Lightening show in Huntsville tonight.Posted by Laura Michelle Johnson on Friday, March 24, 2017
