The tropical weather continues to wreak havoc in Texas. According to the latest update from the National Weather Service (NWS), storms will impact the southeast of the Lone Star State, bringing heavy rains and flooding throughout the coming week.

Currently, the National Hurricane Center estimates a 50% chance of tropical development for most of southern Texas over the next seven days. However, authorities urge residents to stay alert for updates from the NWS in case this probability increases sooner than anticipated.

Where is the heavy rain in Texas this week?

The southeastern cities of Texas will be the most affected by the rains and flooding, particularly those along and near the coast. Houston, Beaumont, Galveston, Corpus Christi, Lake Jackson, Brownsville, and Laredo have the highest likelihood of heavy rainfall. However, areas such as San Antonio, College Station, Brownwood, Sonora, and San Angelo can also expect moderate to heavy rains.

Residents in the impacted regions can anticipate rainfall accumulations ranging from five to eight inches. The heaviest downpours and most intense storms are expected between Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 June.

“There is now a high (70%) probability of formation of a tropical depression/storm in the Bay of Campeche. Regardless of tropical development, periods of heavy rainfall are expected this week in SE TX especially near and along the coast. Stay weather aware,” the NWS in Houston cautioned via social media.
