Rice University Weather

Over the next several days, the Houston area should see several inches of heavy rain. There is also a possibility of some locally high winds. What this means for Rice is that we should be prepared for street flooding on and around campus and should be aware of the risks from high wind like downed tree limbs and blowing debris.

rain forecast for June 18-20 showing potential for 3-4 inches of rain in our area.There is also a change of tropical storm development in the Gulf of Mexico this week with a small tropical depression or storm moving inland near northern Mexico / south Texas (south of Rice) this weekend. Emergency Management is monitoring this weather and coordinating with relevant Rice departments to ensure that we are safe. Please be weather-aware and take steps to protect yourself and your loved ones.
