Additionally, a flash flood warning is in effect until 8:15 a.m. and a flood advisory is in effect until 9:30 a.m. for parts of Harris County.

Forecasters said some locations have received between and 5 and 10 inches of rain the past couple days and additional heavy rainfall will runoff quickly to produce flash flooding.
