Texas, Hockley

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:39 PM CDT on September 18, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on September 19, 2014

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Friday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Texas and the Panhandle of Texas...
including the following areas... in northwest Texas... Bailey...
Cochran... Cottle... Crosby... Dickens... Floyd... Garza... Hale...
Hockley... Kent... King... Lamb... Lubbock... Lynn... Motley...
Stonewall... Terry and Yoakum. In the Panhandle of Texas...
Briscoe... Castro... Parmer and Swisher.

* Through Friday evening

* the remnants of tropical cyclone Odile... currently over southern
New Mexico... are expected to slowly move toward West Texas over
the next few days. The airmass across the Texas South Plains
region just in advance of Odile remains saturated... while the
ground has been soaked by several recent rain storms. This will
bring potential for widespread heavy rainfall in the range of 1 to
4 inches... while locally higher accumulations are likely as
well. And since run-off potential will be high... these rain
amounts could cause areal flooding or local flash flooding.

* Areal flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas...
including low lying roadways in urban areas... near Playa
Lakes..and along creeks and draws. Pockets of flash flooding
will be possible in areas prone to rapid runoff such as the edge
of The Caprock Escarpment.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
