What to expect as heavy downpours push through the area – KPRC Click2Houston

HOUSTON – A line of storms is expected to bring heavy downpours into the metro area for the Monday morning commute.

The National Weather Service was watching for severe storms overnight but there are no current watches or warnings.

What to expect for Monday?

The biggest impact will be heavy rain and gusty winds along the leading edge of the storms and lots of lightning. There could be wind gusts over 30 mph Monday morning with the strongest storms.

Isolated street flooding could be a concern with a quick 1 to 3 inches of rain possible. It is important to take extra caution and time Monday morning.

The line of storms is expected to reach the coast by around 7 a.m., but the rain will continue until around 8 a.m. Monday.

Temperatures will have a brief cool down behind the rain later Monday morning and will drop to the mid-70s to low 80s. However, by the afternoon, temperatures will be back to 90 degrees with “feels like” temperatures reaching between 100 and 105 degrees.

Stray afternoon storms are possible, but rain chances will be about 20% given all the action Monday morning.

What’s happening tomorrow?

Another upper-level system is expected Tuesday and could impact the driving conditions Tuesday morning. Rainfall looks to be a larger concern Tuesday, with street flooding possible. 

After a stormy start to the work week, the remainder of the week will give way to typical Houston Summer weather -warm muggy mornings and hot and humid afternoons with only some splash-and-dash afternoon showers expected.
