Radar looks really rough dude, keep us posted best you can and stay safe.

During Harvey, I had some extremely narrow and extremely heavy convective bands training over me. The exact same thing is happening tonight. It may not be raining a mile or two away.

Looks heavy on the Western side of the metro as of right now.
That's where I am. Just outside the flash flood warning.

The rain here is heavier than the radar indicates. 681cfbde25d980ef95d72632d209720c.jpg

You beat me to it.  Didn't have a quarter to compare it to, but ours looked about like that.  I had to help wrestle a couple of completely wired kids so getting GOOD photos of the hail didn't happen.

"Here" is about a mile NE of the #2030 gauge at Buffalo Bayou at Greenbusch Road - I think that's a few miles N-NW of you.

Closer to northwest but I know the area.

I was showing someone how the radar software worked and it served up a very impressive peak of 77.5 dB returns over Houmont Park/Beaumont Place NE of downtown Houston.

27,000 people were at the Astros game. Many left but still a good crowd. They might be stuck. 
Raining in the stadium. This is not uncommon in heavy rain. The game should have been postponed.

My brother from Ohio says he is in Houston for work. He is at IAH airport, probably. He says "minor travel disaster" and "the sky is a strobe light"

75 dBz is Texas-style thunder.

The lightning was spectacular last night.

Kudos to the WPC - this seems like the advance warning got a lot of people off the roads and mitigated the impact.

Plenty of people drove into flooded roads, again. There's really no excuse for that here by now, TBQH.
