COUNTIES...BRAZORIA...CHAMBERS...GALVESTON...HARRIS AND
LIBERTY.

* THROUGH MONDAY MORNING

ARE SATURATED. A COASTAL LOW WILL DEVELOP OFF THE LOWER TEXAS
COAST MOVE TOWARD THE UPPER TEXAS COAST OVERNIGHT AND ON

AS THIS OCCURS. ANY TRAINING HEAVIER CELLS THAT DEVELOP ACROSS
THE WATCH AREA WILL QUICKLY RUNOFF AND PRODUCE FLASH FLOODING.

GENERAL...EXPECT ANOTHER 3/4 INCH TO 2 INCHES THROUGH EARLY

PRECIPITATION. EVEN BRIEF HEAVY RATES CAN CAUSE IMPACTS.

* STREET FLOODING AND FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS WILL BE THE MOST
LIKELY IMPACT. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR AREA RIVERS...
STREAMS AND BAYOUS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
