If you plan to ride out a hurricane in your home, make sure it is in good repair. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels to board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is the most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to withstand high winds.

Just having enough supplies to make it through a hurricane isnโ€™t enough. You need plenty to make it through what could be a LONG recovery period too. Water and electricity could be out for a week or more. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family for a MINIMUM of three days. Also make sure you have extra cash, a battery-powered radio, flashlights, and a portable crank or solar powered USB charger to charge your cell phone.

A cool front will bring a broken line of showers and isolated storms today. Better rain and storm chances will be over the northeast counties. A storm or two could become strong this afternoon.

Behind the front, drier conditions are expected with plenty of sunshine and near seasonal temperatures.

Slow moving storms capable of heavy rainfall rates are possible this weekend which could result in localized street flooding/ponding.

In general you can expect a broad coverage of 1-3" rainfall amounts through Sunday, with isolated 4-6" totals to the southwest of Katy. Exactly how far northeast some of the rain and the heavy rain may spread is still somewhat in question.

We should get a break on Saturday afternoon, but expect numerous showers and thunderstorms to once again develop Saturday evening. Any organized thunderstorms could support heavy rainfall rates. This final round of storms looks to be fairly fast moving, but we will be monitoring the forecast for changes.

While there remains a risk of a few strong to severe thunderstorms this weekend, the primary concern will be the potential for heavy rain.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to move in from the north early Friday morning as a cold front moves slowly coastward. A widespread 1 to 3 inches of rain is expected, but training of
heavier storms can produce localized areas of 4 to 8 inches of
rainfall. An isolated spot or two of 10 inches or more by Friday
evening may be possible.

Flooding of low-lying, poorly draining areas and other vulnerable
locations such as easily-flooded streets are possible if they are
impacted by storms with heavier rainfall rates and amounts.
Where rain rates are more manageable, previously dry
conditions will help reduce concerns for flooding.

Spring showers can bring floods in hours, but flood insurance policies may require 30 days to take effect - a reminder for residents that the time to buy or renew flood insurance is now. Most homeowners and renters insurance doesnโ€™t cover flood damage.

The decision to buy flood insurance should not be based on a line on a mapโ€”where it can rain, it can flood. Just one inch of water can cause more than $25,000 in-home property damage. For many, National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) flood insurance policies cost $500 or less per year. Visit FloodSmart.gov to learn more about flood insurance.
