Flood advisories are in effect for several areas around Houston as rain continues to move through southeast Texas.

The advisory will last until 1:30 p.m. and affects west central Galveston County, northeast Brazoria County and southeast Harris County, meteorologists said.

Some cities and communities that could experience flooding are eastern Pearland, League City, Friendswood, Alvin, Dickinson, Santa Fe, Webster, Hitchcock, southwestern Clear Lake, southern South Belt/Ellington and Hillcrest, according to the National Weather Service.

About 1 to 2 inches of rain have already fallen, and another 1 to 2 inches of rain are expected.

Meteorologists say that the storms today are bringing threats of frequent lightning, brief heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

The weather could also produce “short-lived” tropical funnels and waterspouts, meteorologists said in a weather alert. Thunderstorm activity is possible through 3 p.m., and maybe through rush hour.

Rainy weather is expected to continue through Labor Day weekend.
