Statement as of 4:26 AM CDT on May 29, 2015

Expires 1:00 PM EDT on May 29, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect until noon CDT today...

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.

* Until noon CDT today

* a slow moving outflow boundary will serve as a focus for showers
and thunderstorms this morning. Rainfall rates are not
tremendously heavy but there is potential for storms to move
over the same areas repeatedly yielding higher rainfall totals
and increasing the potential for flash flooding.

* Soils are saturated and rivers remain very high from recent
rains and any additional rain could lead to flash flooding this
morning. Areas west of a Huntsville to Sugar Land to Bay City
line could receive between 2 and 4 inches of rain this morning
with lighter totals expected east of this line.

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.
