THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY OFFICE
OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 9, 2020
4 Day Forecast Outlook
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management on Weather Conditions
A cold front will be moving into the College Station area around mid-afternoon today and will cause storms to develop. A very unstable air mass will be in place across Southeast with afternoon temperatures in the mid-80s to lower 90s and humid! This will fuel strong to severe thunderstorms with the primary threat being large hail and secondarily strong damaging winds. Our area is expected to have the rainfall rate of 2-3″/hour. These storms should spread east and southeast into the Conroe area between 5 and 8 pm then to the coast early evening. Storms may also redevelop with a cluster as an area of low pressure develops along the front, this could aggravate the heavy rain situation.
Another system should bring another widespread round of thunderstorms Saturday afternoon through mid-morning Sunday. Again a threat of severe weather and the Storm Prediction Center has placed the area in a slight risk. Hail and damaging winds are the threats. A persistent moderate to strong easterly wind along the coast should also raise tide levels and strengthen rip currents Friday through Saturday.
