Tornado Watch for parts of Southeast Texas until 9 p.m.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Tornado Watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for parts of Southeast Texas. It includes Austin, Colorado, Grimes, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, and Washington counties. It does not include Houston.



A Flash Flood Watch is also in effect for all of Southeast Texas until 7 a.m. Thursday.

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

We got a little break from the rainfall late this morning and into the early afternoon. Scattered showers and storms could start popping back up by the mid to late afternoon. Another disturbance is forecasted to move over this evening bringing in more showers and storms. Flooding will be possible along with a few strong to severe storms. If we see a severe storm, main threats will be hail over quarter size and 60+ mph wind gusts. The tornado threat is low but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

You'll want to stay weather and traffic aware over the next few days as flash flooding chances rise into Wednesday.



Will Tuesday be as wet as Monday?
It's certainly possible. Another disturbance will cross the area Tuesday morning. Another wave will move through Tuesday evening.

When will the heaviest rain fall?
The greatest concern for flooding from heavy rain will happen Wednesday afternoon and night. 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.
