The Harris County Flood Control District and National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Office are warning that a strong storm system will approach Houston this afternoon, with the potential for bringing strong winds, and heavy rain which could lead to isolated areas of street flooding this afternoon.
While it's difficult to say for sure, the highest threat remains in the southern part of the Houston metro area, with some storms bringing isolated amounts of 2-3", which could quickly fill streets, underpasses and low-lying areas.
Residents should prepare for heavy rain and flooding this afternoon, plan extra time in their commutes, and be aware of changing conditions throughout the day.
It only take a few inches of water to float a vehicle. When you see water covering the road, Turn Around, Don't Drown®.
For safety tips during heavy rain, watch this video from the Houston Police Department.
