Strong storms, severe weather threat possible as cool front arrives Wednesday morning

A messy Wednesday morning then turning very pleasant for the rest of the week!

Tuesday Evening Forecast:

The rest of the day will be cooler, in the 70s, cloudy and overcast. Some additional storms are possible later today but very spotty. The next round of storms will move in overnight.

Wednesday’s Forecast:

A cold front moves in Wednesday morning. There may be enough energy with the storms to create severe weather and street flooding. Damaging winds, a tornado or two and hail are possible as the cold front moves in. The timing is 2am for our northwestern counties, 3-4am across Houston metro, 5-6am along the coast. Storms will come in fast with strong to damaging winds of 40mph+ along with heavy rain along the line.

the cold front will slam across the region early Wed AM
Storms will continue to pound across the coast by sunrise

Rainfall Totals:

The cold front will come with heavy rain arriving Wednesday morning. Most of us will get a range of 1-2″ but some isolated spots could see higher amounts and those areas could get street flooding. However, we’re not anticipating widespread flooding potential because of the speed of the cold front coming through.

Between 1-2" of rain is possible as the cold front comes through

10-day Forecast:

All of the rain will move out Wednesday night. Dry weather is expected this Memorial Day weekend but it will be hot and humid. Our next chance of showers arrives Tuesday of next week.

A messy morning Wednesday but then clearing out nicely for Memorial Day Weekend!
