The Katy Freeway (I-10W) is a giant parking lot Monday-Friday, 3-8pm. Luckily it is Saturday. Tornado warning continues for Southern Harris, through the heart of downtown Houston.
I got a good storm here, dime sized hail, torrential rain and WIND. Times the wind was changing direction so fast I was getting a little nervous. Still getting good CGs just west of my house. The tornado warned area is the same area hit by tornadoes in November. Since I couldn't go anywhere, just pulled the lawn swing in the garage and watched it all.
I "chased the warnings" near Houston today and didn't see much noteworthy.. I probably should have stuck with the best looking storm, the first one I saw when I drove north from home to near Tomball. It had some nice looking low-hanging scud in the rain free base to the south of the rain area; I found out later that storm dropped baseball hail on Magnolia to the north.
While there, I heard a tornado warning for Waller County to the west with Prairie View in the path so I got to Prairie View in 15 min.. but the main rain area was to the south. So I went south from there, encountering heavy rain and street flooding in Brookshire. Then I went on I-10 to the east through Katy but I couldn't catch up to the tornado warnings continuing to the east, due to traffic slowing to 30 mph on the freeway in the heavy rain and small hail. It was a fun outing though, and I learned a little about the importance of taking visual cues.
Note that local TV reported damage likely from a small tornado in SW Houston, where cars were overturned in a parking lot w/ structural damage to stores and a gas station canopy nearby.
