Rain, lightning, power outages continue across greater Houston
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — The threat for tornadoes is now over for Houston and most of Southeast Texas, but the threat of flash flooding lingers in our coastal counties.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for all of Southeast Texas until 7 a.m. Thursday, but it might get extended into Friday when additional downpours are expected.

Drivers should use caution on the roads as roadways will have the potential for flooding over the next couple of days.

When will the heaviest rain fall?

The greatest concern for flooding from heavy rain will happen overnight through all of Wednesday and into Thursday morning. Street and creek flooding will be likely then. And we’ll really need to watch the bayous during that time since the heavy rain could fall for several hours. River flooding is also likely due to the widespread rains coming to the eastern half of Texas over the next several days.When will rain chances come to an end?
Moisture will still be sticking around keeping rain chances in the forecast into the weekend. We should finally get a break on Sunday.
