The Harris County Flood Control District's Flood Watch is reporting water levels in bayous and creeks all day Wednesday.

A National Weather Service Flood Warning is in effect until 4:15pm for Harris, Fort Bend and Wharton counties.

Storm water levels in most bayous continue to fall with a midday break in the rain, following widespread rain totals of between 2-7 inches over the last 12 hours across all but far southeast Harris County.

Watersheds in the northwest portion of Harris County continue to slowly rise as upstream run-off arrives into upper Spring Creek and upper Cypress Creek from outside Harris County.

It will take some time for roadways to drain due to the large volumes of water.
