Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 7:59 AM CDT on April 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 01, 2016


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 1 PM CDT this
afternoon through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
Austin... Brazos... Burleson... Colorado... Fort ... Bend...
Grimes... Harris... Houston... Madison... Montgomery... Polk... San
Jacinto... Trinity... Walker... Waller... Washington and Wharton.

* From 1 PM CDT this afternoon through Sunday morning

* unusually moist tropical air will move into the region today as
southerly winds increase. Showers and thunderstorms should
develop west of Interstate 45 early this afternoon... then
gradually overspread the remainder of the region later in the
day... overnight and into Saturday. There is considerable
uncertainty regarding exactly where the heaviest rains will set
up. However... the ground is saturated across most of the watch
area and any storms with high rain rates will lead to rapid
runoff and flooding. The peak threat of the heaviest rainfall
currently appears to be between late this afternoon until about
midday Saturday. Additional periods of rainfall are possible
after that and the ground will be saturated and streams and
bayous may already be swollen or flooding. Widespread rainfall
totals between this afternoon through Sunday will likely
average 2 to 4 inches with localized amounts of 5 to 8 inches
possible. Much of these amounts could come in only a few hours
of heavy rain.

* Streets... bayous... streams and rivers will likely have the
greatest impacts from the heavy rainfall. Motorists and
persons with outdoor activities should stay abreast of the
latest forecasts and have contingency plans for when the heavy
rain arrives.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
