Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 6:10 PM CDT on May 30, 2015

The National Weather Service in League City has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Colorado County in southeastern Texas...
Wharton County in southeastern Texas...
southeastern Washington County in southeastern Texas...
northwestern Harris County in southeastern Texas...
Austin County in southeastern Texas...
northern Jackson County in south central Texas...
Waller County in southeastern Texas...
southwestern Montgomery County in southeastern Texas...
western Fort Bend County in southeastern Texas...
southeastern Grimes County in southeastern Texas...

* until 800 PM CDT

* at 606 PM CDT... Doppler radar indicated 2 lines of thunderstorms
in the advisory area. One moving in from the north and another
associated with a north moving seabreeze. Cells within these lines
are producing rates up to 2 inches per hour and could produce
street and creek flooding. Both lines will likely collide
somewhere near the Interstate 10 corridor. Should this
occur... rain rates will spike even higher and flash flood warnings
may be required.


* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Brenham... Katy... El Campo... Tomball... Wharton... Sealy...
Hempstead... Prairie View... Edna... Brookshire... Bellville...
Columbus... Eagle Lake... Pinehurst... The Woodlands... Hockley...
Waller... East Bernard... Weimar and Ganado.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

341 PM CDT Sat may 30 2015

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

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

* Through Sunday morning

* a slow moving front will push into southeast Texas Saturday
afternoon through Sunday morning. Thunderstorms are expected
to develop along and ahead of the front during the afternoon.
A weak sea breeze will also develop and could possibly merge
with the front during the late afternoon. This scenario could
produce excessive rains along the Highway 59 corridor. Storms
will be slow moving and capable of producing 1 to 2 inches an
hour. General rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be
possible but there may be isolated areas of 4 to 6 inches. Any
rainfall amounts over 3 inches will cause flooding problems.

* Grounds are already saturated so any additional rainfall will
likely run off into bayous... creeks... rivers and lakes.
Typical low lying areas such as underpasses could flood
quickly with rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour.
Additional rainfall could prolong river flooding across the
area. Heavy rainfall could occur overnight Saturday which will
increase The Hazards of flooding. If flash flood warnings are
issued in your area... do not drive into flooded roads or
underpasses. Turn around do not drown.

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.
