Texas residents should brace for delays in getting around, but travel advice on the popular U.S. interstate is in force for the moment, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
The Texas Department of Transportation issued a travel advisory Monday afternoon, urging residents to avoid travel in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the Houston Metro Area Transit Authority and other areas.
The advisory said travelers should consider alternative routes or avoid travel altogether if possible.
Travelers should also consider other transportation options, such as public transit, in addition to flying.
Texas is also facing another threat, as the National Weather Service predicts severe thunderstorms in the western part of the state will be active through Tuesday morning, with wind gusts topping 50 mph.
The storm will dump about 3 to 4 inches of rain in the area.
The rain is expected to be heavier than previous thunderstorms, with high pressure over the state near the top of the forecast track.
There is also a chance of hail in the region, which could cause flash flooding.
