Thunderstorms Tonight, Heavy Winds for Saturday and Sunday

The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management continue to work with its
partners to bring you the most updated weather information available.
The National Weather Service has predicted that the radar is expected to remain quiet through early afternoon,
with storms expected to develop southwest of the Houston metro between 3-6 PM. Additional thunderstorms are
expected to develop and move across Houston in the 5-8 PM time frame, with the bulk of the thunderstorm
activity clearing the region 12-2 AM Saturday. Scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm are expected
during the day on Saturday, but severe weather and flooding is not anticipated. Rain chances will end Saturday
night/early Sunday morning as a cold front sweeps across Southeast Texas, with Wind Advisories likely needed
behind the front with sustained northwest winds 20-30 MPH and stronger gusts to 40 MPH.
Possible threats during these storms are large hail (some hail may be larger than golf ball sized), damaging
wind, isolated tornado, and/or brief locally heavy rainfall.
There is a chance of strong gusty winds on Saturday night through Sunday. Should tornadoes or gusty winds
occur expect down trees, powerlines, power outages and damage to roofs of structures.
