- After a day full of tornado watches, warnings and heavy rain, the strongest of the storms are moving east toward Louisiana for tonight.
- The National Weather Service in League City has confirmed at least one tornado touchdown in the Pasadena and as you can see by the graphic below, several more reports of tornadic activity. Damage surveys will be conducted on Wednesday. Rain estimates of 4-5 inches across the area have been common.
Within the areas of heaviest rainfall was a record of 4.04″ at Bush/IAH. There will likely be several more recordings of record rain.
The heavy rain has led to several creeks reaching and exceeding their banks. South Mayde Creek at Greenhouse is one of those. You can see it is clearly out of bank but the heaviest rain has long passed. The runoff is the issue for now and is expected to continue to be a problem through the evening.
Colder air will be in place for the Houston area. After a high of 71 in Galveston Tuesday afternoon, the Wednesday morning lows will be in the 30s in many places.
Behind this cold front we will see cool and sunny weather to end the week. As we approach next weekend winds will shift to the southeast which will warm us up and increase humidity.
