According to the National Weather Service, severe weather is expected across southeast Texas Friday night and early Saturday as a cold front moves through the area. Thunderstorms, strong winds, isolated tornadoes, hail and lightning are possible with this system. However, the majority of the event will take place after dark, likely between 10:00 pm Friday and 1:00 am Saturday. This is a fast moving system that will provide less warning time for impacts. It is extremely important that everyone have a way to receive emergency alerts throughout the night.
What you should do:
PREPARE AT HOME BEFORE GOING TO BED
STAY INFORMED THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT
