Weather Information

The National Weather Service (NWS) says the Houston area may experience heavy rain today as a storm system moves over the city.  While widespread flooding is not expected, and creeks/bayous are expected to remain in their banks, heavy rain in isolated areas may result in dangerous travel conditions and roadway flooding.

NWS says the Houston area can expect to see rainfall just over an inch over the next day, with the system beginning to clear out by this evening.

What Can I Do?

Be aware of quickly changing conditions, especially if you are traveling on roadways.  Heavy rain can cause low visibility, so avoid driving during periods of heavy rain.

Wet roads can be dangerous, so give yourself extra following distance, and don't forget to turn on headlights.

Managing Anxiety

After Harvey, heavy rain may cause some anxiety in Houston area residents. Be sure to take care of yourself, and if you need help, call the Disaster Distress Hotline at 1-800-985-5990 (para español, marque el numero 2) or text TalkWithUs to 66746. This free service connects you with a trained crisis counselor.
