Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Houston Until 1 AM
The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Houston until 1 a.m. due to strong storms moving across the area.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is issued by the National Weather Service when conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
If a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued for your area, seek shelter immediately in an interior room without windows and on the lowest floor of a building. People should bring their pets inside and delay travel or outdoor activities until the storm passes.
If travel is unavoidable, reduce your speed to avoid hydroplaning. Heavy rains may also impact the area and only a few inches of water can float a vehicle. When you see water covering the road, Turn Around, Don't Drown®.
