Storms move into Houston as 24-hour severe weather threat kicks off

2 min read

Showers are moving into Houston on Tuesday afternoon as a broader threat for severe weather kicks off in north and central Texas, including communities northwest of the Bayou City. 

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service (NWS) in League City forecast quick-developing thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon, which includes the threat for potentially damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes. They also predicted heavy downpours embedded in the storms, though they should be in isolated areas. 

Much of the storms are sticking to the southeast portion of Greater Houston. Already today, those in Galveston saw winds with gusts up to 60 mph in some places, which knocked this utility pole off its base. 

Once this bout of storms moves to the east Tuesday evening, chances for more severe weather—including a potential tornado watch—are in store for communities near and northwest of Bryan/College Station, from Austin to Dallas-Fort Worth, according to NWS. 

Storms in that region could become severe, although they’ll have great difficulty reaching Houston. The metro, for the most part, only has Tuesday afternoon’s storms to worry about, according to meteorologists.

Come Wednesday, there’s another chance for severe weather in communities northeast of the metro, meteorologists said. Houston is also under a slight threat for severe weather again Wednesday. 

By Wednesday evening, showers will be out of the Houston area and the skies will begin to clear. Temperatures overnight Wednesday will bottom out near 60 degrees. On Thursday, Houston will reach the low 80s in the afternoon under sunny skies. Rain chances return Friday and Saturday.
