1 hour radar estimates over 2.5" of rain. Slow down on the east side! That is blinding, pouring rain. More deep tropical moisture is off shore and will impact us today. @KHOU#khou11 Our flash flood watch is in effect through this evening.
Good Monday morning!
@chitakhou is back and she's watching for tropical development in the Gulf this week... but says either way we're in for a wet week (finally!)...
Her forecast all AM this week on @KHOU!
Big changes are on the way this week as rain returns to the area. Showers and storms are possible as early as tonight as a weak front crosses into Southeast Texas from Louisiana.
Watch @chitakhou for the latest forecast and download the KHOU 11 app for weather alerts.
Galveston is the latest county to issue a burn ban. We have several other counties under one too. We are dry- hot- and breezy. We get hotter for Father's Day. On TV talking about it or visit khou.com@KHOU
We've got a hot, humid, & dusty next couple of days in the forecast. We could really use some rain and a lucky few may have a chance later this week. @chitakhou is in with an updated forecast this evening! @KHOU
High temperatures are expected to reach the 100-degree mark across most inland locations this weekend Practicing heat safety will remain critical. Stay hydrated and avoid strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day. #houwx#txwx
🔥 While heat continues to be more of the immediate, short-term story across Texas... a longer-lived and potentially more significant problem is worsening: drought
The latest report from NOAA forecasts drought conditions persist and spread across the state through August
Seeing temperatures reach 100° or hotter in #Houston is nothing new, nor is it rare, we average about 5 per year. However, it's been nearly 2 years since our last run into the triple digits, and this run comes well ahead of normal. @KHOU
A very hot weekend is expected with inland highs in excess of 100 degrees while coastal locations rise into the 90s. Heat index values in excess of 105 are expected. Continue to take heat safety precautions to protect yourself from these dangerous conditions. #houwx#txwx
It's still hot...but at least rain is in the forecast! A weak cold front moving through this morning & interacting with the sea breeze this afternoon will bring an increase in rain chances for today. Grab an umbrella before you walk out the door! ☔️ #TXwx#HOUwx#BCSwx#GLSwx
Heavy rain is expected to overspread southern Florida and the Florida Keys beginning on Friday. Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum amounts up to 10 inches are possible through Sunday. This rainfall may produce considerable flash and urban flooding.
Today marks the start of hurricane season. Have you seen the list of names this year??
Did you know that the names are rotated every six years unless a name is retired-
So these same names were used in 2016. Just a little nugget. @KHOU Full forecast khou.com
We've got another warm day to finish out May - look for highs back in the lower half of the 90s and a peak heat index around 100°.
Meanwhile, in the tropics, Agatha has made landfall in Mexico and expectations remain for the remnants to avoid SE Texas once it's in the Gulf.
The latest 7-day precipitation forecast shows two main areas of active and potentially impactful weather. Numerous t-storms are likely across the central U.S. over the span of multiple days. Meanwhile, moisture from a tropical disturbance may impact southern FL late this week.
#HurricaneAgatha in the Pacific going to make landfall tonight south of Acapulco. Heads up if you have a trip to central/south Florida- moisture heading there for the upcoming weekend @KHOU#khou11 Hurricane season begins June 1st. See the full forecast khou.com
Quiet now in Houston... but get ready.
@pcavlin just timed out arrival of a pretty potent looking little storm cell that's tracking toward the Katy area.
We're watching out for #Katy#Needville#Rosenberg on @KHOU.
Arrival for communities southwest of Houston...
Correction: At Galveston, a low temperature of 72 degrees was observed last night. This is the lowest temperature recorded in Galveston since April 28th, and the first time the low temperature was below 81 degrees since April 17th. #glswx#txwx
