Hail and violent thunderstorms expected Monday between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Monday is a Fox 26 Storm Warning day and you should expect severe weather between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

FOX 26 Houston is now on the FOX LOCAL app available via Apple TV, Amazon FireTV, Roku, Google Android TV and Vizio!

Nothing is “off the table,” so high winds and large hail are expected…and there is also a small risk of a tornado.

Rainfall totals could exceed 2-3″ and the timing could result in hazardous weather conditions while school is out.

The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has put much of Texas, including our region, at risk for large hail, as indicated by the black dotted lines.

Large hail would be 2 inches in diameter – so anything from the size of a nickel to the size of an egg is possible.


Large hail is usually isolated in terms of coverage, but you may want to park your car under cover if possible.

The models agree fairly well on the intensity of today’s storms and their overall evolution.

Pictured are NOAA’s high-resolution model, HRRR, and our weather system model called GRAF. Both show intense storms by mid-afternoon.

We can’t seem to catch a break from the stormy weather lately and this trend could continue with another round of storms Thursday/Friday.
