The heaviest rain looks to arrive early Saturday morning. That's when rainfall rates of 2"+ per hour will likely cause street ponding and make a real mess of any travel you have to do to start the weekend. The soccer, baseball and softball games are canceled. Cold air on the back side of the storm will produce heavy snow in the Texas panhandle. Students at Texas Tech in Lubbock will have a hard time studying for finals, in between snowball fights!
Rain totals like these (below) will cause lots of high water spots on roads and cause creeks, bayous and rivers to rise. It's something we will have to monitor moment to moment together. If you live near a waterway stay weather aware with us. We'll be updating you across all digital and social platforms as well as on TV Saturday morning.
Thursday looks good (below), but you'll notice high clouds thickening up in advance of the approaching storm. Rain begins Friday afternoon and last through Saturday morning. Then it gets windy and much colder Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Bundle up if you're tailgating with the Texans at NRG on Sunday.
