Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 10:35 AM CDT on 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.
