Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 1:14 PM CDT on May 28, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 7 PM CDT this evening through
Friday morning...

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has expanded
the

* Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of south central
Texas... including the following areas... Bastrop... Bexar...
blanco... Burnet... Caldwell... Comal... Dimmit... Fayette... frio...
   Guadalupe... Hays... Kendall... Lee... Maverick... Medina...
Travis... Williamson and Zavala.

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Friday morning

* rainfall is expected to approach the Rio Grande from the west
this evening and progress eastward across The Hill Country and
potentially through the I-35 corridor during the overnight
hours. Between 1-2 inches of rain is forecast with isolated
amounts of 3 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 rain develops.

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.





Special Statement
Statement as of 1:33 PM CDT on May 28, 2015

... Funnel clouds possible across portions of south central Texas
through this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has received
reports of funnel clouds observed along and east of the Interstate
35 corridor. These funnel clouds are typically brief and remain
aloft. On occasion... these funnel clouds may briefly reach the
ground and become a weak tornado.

If a funnel cloud is observed... do not panic but be prepared to take
shelter in a sturdy building as a precaution. These funnel clouds
will be short-lived but could be capable of producing minor damage
and flying debris if they reach the ground. These funnel clouds are
typically brief in nature and are extremely difficult to detect on
radar.

Conditions will remain favorable for the development of funnel
clouds through the early evening.
