The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for all of the Houston area and its surrounding communities ahead of heavy rain expected over the next 36 hours.
The watch is set to expire Saturday evening as storms are pushed off the coast. Rain showers will start Friday afternoon and could dump up to nearly two inches by day’s end.

While the flash flood threat ends Saturday evening, lingering storms could still bring rain to the area Saturday night.
Sunday will have spotty showers. Mostly sunny skies and dry weather returns Monday, with highs in the upper-80s.
