Storms are developing along a cold front and continue to move southeast toward the Houston area. These storms are generally producing strong winds and small hail.
Track the line of storms overnight in the KPRC 2+ livestream player below:
The front will first move into our northwest and northern area by midnight:
For Downtown Houston the front moves in at 1am. This is when we will see our highest severe threat. It will be at the coast at 2am.
The front will be offshore at 4am but showers will linger across the area most of the morning. Even as the front moves through, expect Friday morning’s commute to be a messy one.
Showers will produce 1- 2″ of rain, which means some minor street flooding will be possible.
There is a chance to see some stronger thunderstorms along the line as it moves through. There is a slight threat for damaging winds and small hail with an isolated tornado possible. It will also usher in another shot of cooler air for the following weekend.
Our greatest chance for rain in the next five days will be Thursday night, overnight into early Friday morning. This is coming with a cold front that will bring plenty of 50s and 40s for a cool weekend.
