Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:27 PM CDT on May 25, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 am CDT Tuesday...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of south central Texas... including the following
areas... Atascosa... Bandera... Bastrop... Bexar... blanco...
Burnet... Caldwell... Comal... De Witt... Fayette... Gillespie...
Gonzales... Guadalupe... Hays... Karnes... Kendall... Kerr...
Lavaca... Lee... Llano... Travis... Williamson and Wilson.

* Until 1 am CDT Tuesday

* showers and thunderstorms are producing locally heavy rainfall
across south central Texas... causing up to 3 inches of rain per
hour in parts of The Hill Country and I-35 corridor. The heavy
rainfall threat will gradually end from west to east this
evening. Rainfall totals of 1 to 4 inches are expected... with
isolated amounts over 5 inches possible.

* Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in
the area... rapid flash flooding of low water crossings and
some roadways will be possible where heavy rains develop. Area
rivers and streams are also out of banks or in flood. Some of
these rivers and streams will reach their flood stages very
quickly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means flash flooding is possible in or near
the watch area. If you are in the watch area... plan now for what
you will do if flash flooding develops. Stay informed and be
ready to act if you see flooding or if a Flash Flood Warning is
issued.

Do not drive into flooded roadways. Some roadways... low water
crossings... and bridges may be inundated or overtopped. If you
see water flowing over a roadway... do not try to pass! Remember...
turn around... dont drown.
