Harvey Now Cat. 1 Hurricane; Flash Flood Watch Issued Until Monday Morning

Here’s the 4:38 p.m. report on Hurricane Harvey from the National Weather Service covering southeast Texas.

Harvey has intensified into a hurricane this afternoon and could become a high Category 3 hurricane on Friday before it makes landfall. But the primary impact from Harvey for Bryan, College Station, and Brazos County remains very heavy rainfall and the potential for extreme flooding. We may see the lower end of some tropical storm force winds on Friday night and into Saturday, but the flooding is really the concern.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Brazos County and other surrounding counties from 4 a.m. Friday until Monday morning. That Flash Flood Watch also could be extended further into next week depending on Harvey’s path and how much it slows down over the weekend.
