Strong Storms Forecasted for Houston Area on Sunday

Strong thunderstorms could sweep through southeast Texas on Sunday, the Houston/Galveston office of the National Weather Service predicts.

The storms could bring tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds mid morning through early evening. Heavy rainfall could also bring flash flooding. Forecasters predict the area between Columbus and Cleveland to have the highest potential for heavy rainfall, but warn precipitation totals could reach three to four inches anywhere in the region.

The greatest risk for tornadoes is between 6 a.m. and early afternoon Sunday, the weather service says.

The storms will be the second bout of bad weather in less than a week. On Wednesday, forecasters tallied five tornadoes in Harris and Chambers counties.
