A line fairly strong thunderstorms has developed this evening to the west and southwest of Houston, bringing locally heavy rains, intense winds and dime-sized hail. These storms are moving slowly to the east-southeast.
The area of heaviest storms as of 9pm is indicated below:
So far bayous are holding up fine, but there is some localized street flooding beneath the heaviest rains.
Some of the latest modeling suggests these storms may intensify for the next couple of hours, before weakening later tonight. If they’re going to present an ongoing threat we’ll update the site later.
