Thursday’s Forecast:

We’re tracking a front that will get close to SE Texas, but ahead of the front Thursday will start off HOT! Temperatures will reach the upper 90s to 100 in the early afternoon. Mid-afternoon thunderstorms will move in, bringing a messy evening commute and school pick up. The storms will be most likely between 2-7PM. As the front stalls north of us, it will provide the lift to bring strong thunderstorms. While the threats for severe weather and street flooding are low, it is possible in the afternoon.

Flooding will be possible Thursday with rainfall rates over 2″ per hour possible with storms. Totals could reach up to 3″ in some spots, so give yourself extra time for travel.

Tracking the tropics:

We are watching an area of storms in the Caribbean that has a 20% chance of development as it enters the Bay of Campeche. South Texas may get another round of rain from this at the end of the week. More likely is it falls apart before making it that far north. Make sure you have our Hurricane Tracker App for updates when storms form.

There is a low chance for development. (Copyright 2022 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)
