Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:33 PM CDT on May 29, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Saturday 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 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.

* From Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning

* a slow moving front will push into southeast Texas Saturday
afternoon through Sunday morning. Thunderstorms are expected to
develop along it and also ahead of the front during the
afternoon. 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 5 to 7
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.
