Grimes... Harris... Houston... Madison... Montgomery... Polk... San
Jacinto... Trinity... Walker... Waller... Washington and Wharton.

* Through Sunday morning

Unusually moist tropical air will continue to flow into the area
this afternoon and overnight. Storms will develop to the north
and west of the region this afternoon then expand into the
region overnight. The ground is saturated and any rainfall will
rapidly convert to runoff. These storms will be capable of
intense rainfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour. These storms
may become anchored in an east to west band with storms moving
north north colliding with the boundary and probably
intensifying rain rates. Where the boundary sets up is still
difficult to pinpoint but probably in the zone between the
Interstate 10 corridor and College Station and Huntsville.
Rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches should be widespread over the
watch area with localized amounts of 7 to 10 inches. Street
flooding may become widespread in the watch area and travel
overnight should be reconsidered. Rivers and streams across the
watch area may quickly flood with the heavy rainfall. Stay
informed on the weather overnight.

The rains should gradually move out of the region Saturday
afternoon. More storms may form Sunday and then another system
arrives Monday and Tuesday bringing more rainfall.


* Streets... bayous... streams and rivers will likely have the
greatest impacts from the heavy rainfall. Motorists and persons
with outdoor activities should stay ado 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. Vehicles
caught in rising water should be abandoned quickly. If your
vehicle stalls... abandon it and seek higher ground immediately.
Rapidly rising water may engulf your vehicle and its occupants
and sweep them away. Move to higher ground.Breast of the latest
forecasts and have contingency plans in place when the heavy
rain arrives late this afternoon and tonight.
