Flash Flood Watch for entire Houston area until Sunday morning

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the entire Houston area until 7 a.m. Sunday.

Rain, heavy at times, is likely Friday morning into the afternoon.

We should see the rain taper off some as we head toward the evening, but it's possible some areas might see more heavy rain on Saturday.


Rainfall totals could exceed 6" before the rain wraps up on Sunday, however, most of us will likely see between 2 and 4 inches.

Temperatures will remain mild in the mid and upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

The really warm weather returns Monday with highs expected to near 90 degrees.

Turn around, don't drown

Do not drive through flooded areas. If you see water covering the road, do not attempt to cross it.  Only a few inches of water can float a vehicle.

Officials say if you find yourself in a dangerous situation where your vehicle is taking on water, get out of the vehicle, get to a higher position, and call 911.

Ella Blvd at FM 1960 Road West in north Harris County
