Potential For Heavy Rain This Weekend

There is a potential for heavy rainfall this Father’s Day weekend

Officials in Harris County are monitoring the potential for heavy rainfall and street flooding this Father's Day weekend.

Emergency officials want to make sure residents are prepared for the worst case.

There's a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico that may or may not develop into a storm and it could dump rain on Texas for several days this weekend or early next week.

“Right now, the most likely scenario is some areas on our roadways will see high water,” said Francisco Sanchez with the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “But certainly a worst-case scenario for us is anything that impacts the bayous in a way that would cause them to go out of their banks. Right now, that's not expected.”
