Forecast Predicts Heavy Rainfall In Texas This Weekend

Rainfall totals in the Houston area are expected to be in the one to two inch range.

The National Weather Service is predicting heavy rainfall in Texas this weekend. Rainfall totals in the Houston area are expected to be in the one to two inch range, but they could get slightly higher.

NWS meteorologist Scott Overpeck said two storm systems are expected to move through the state, possibly stretching between Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas.

“We’re not talking about any kind of outbreak or anything like that, but (it’s) possible that a few storms could be severe,” Overpeck said, “and by that we mean it could produce hail, it could produce some really strong gusty winds like around 60 miles an hour and of course there’s always that small chance we could see a brief, brief tornado.”

Additionally, long periods of heavy rain could cause street flooding.
