HOUSTON (Covering Katy News) – While a flash flood watch has expired in the Katy area there is a new weather statement being issued by the National Weather Service. With deep Gulf moisture in place, conditions are somewhat favorable for tropical funnel clouds.
Funnel clouds in this environment are usually short-lived and rarely reach the ground. However, if one is observed be prepared to seek shelter if it appears to descend to the ground as they can produce strong winds that can produce minor damage.
Similarly, waterspouts are also possible and can be hazardous to mariners. If a waterspout is observed, move at a 90-degree angle from its apparent motion and seek shelter until it has passed or dissipates.
There was a report of a funnel cloud in the Katy area on Tuesday, June 19.
