Potential weather event starting today through Friday morning

Texas Children’s leadership and the Organizational Resilience team are closely monitoring a weather event that could impact the Houston and Beaumont areas from this afternoon through Friday morning.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible later today that will be capable of producing lightning, gusty winds and heavy downpours. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to become more widespread along the coast overnight and spread inland through Thursday, with storms becoming more numerous late Thursday and into Friday morning.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to bring a total of 4-6 inches of rain to Houston through Friday, with 2-4 inches expected in Beaumont. Though scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through Saturday in Austin, College Station and Tyler, widespread significant weather is not expected in those areas.

Team members commuting to campus and TCP/UC locations from now through Friday morning are advised to follow local news and weather for traffic and safety alerts, use caution when navigating roadways and plan for additional time to travel through stormy conditions and detour around flooded areas. Please also remain in contact with your local leadership about your status and any impacts to local operations.
