Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:04 PM CDT on April 28, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 01, 2016


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Friday afternoon through
Sunday morning...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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 Friday afternoon through Sunday morning

* unusually moist tropical air will stream into the region Friday
as southerly winds increase. An upper level jetstream will bring
a series of disturbances into the region and should help to
develop showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon over the
western portions of the watch area then shifting eastward and
northward throughout the region Friday night and Saturday. The
ground is saturated and any storms with high rain rates will
lead to rapid runoff and flooding. The heaviest rainfall threat
should peak Friday night through Saturday afternoon. Additional
rainfall is possible after that and the ground will be saturated
and streams and bayous may already be swollen or flooding.
Widespread rainfall totals through the watch period will likely
average 2 to 4 inches with localized amounts of 5 to 8 inches.
Much of these amounts could come in only a few hours of heavy
rain. As we approach the watch period confidence in timing and
location will likely improve the focus for where the heavy rains
will fall.

* 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.
