...FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

THE FLOOD WATCH IS NOW IN EFFECT FOR

* A PORTION OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING
COUNTIES...AUSTIN...BRAZORIA...CHAMBERS...COLORADO...FORT
BEND...GALVESTON...HARRIS...JACKSON...LIBERTY...MATAGORDA...
MONTGOMERY...WALLER AND WHARTON.

* UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING

* OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS THE REGION HAS RECEIVED COPIOUS AMOUNTS
OF RAIN...AN AVERAGE 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAIN WITH SOME ISOLATED
AREAS PICKING UPWARDS OF 7 TO 8 INCHES. SHOWERS AND STORMS
DEVELOPED EARLY THIS MORNING AND HAD LITTLE TO NO MOVEMENT.
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
REDEVELOP LATER TODAY...POSSIBLY FURTHER SOUTH AS CENTRAL COUNTY
MORNING ACTIVITY SAGS TOWARDS THE COAST. THE FORECAST IS FOR
POCKETS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN TO PUT DOWN ANOTHER 1 TO 2
INCHES OF RAIN...LOCALLY 2 TO 4 INCHES...THROUGH TONIGHT. THE
POTENTIAL FOR TRAINING RAIN WILL ONLY EXACERBATE LOCALIZED
FLOODING GENERALLY IN AND AROUND THE CITY OF HOUSTON AND POINTS
WEST AND SOUTHWESTWARD. THIS ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL LIKELY
CAUSE NUISANCE STREET FLOODING AND LOW LYING AREAS TO GO UNDER
WATER. MOTORISTS SHOULD AVOID ANY FLOODED ROADWAY.

SOUTH MAYDE CREEK IN WESTERN HARRIS COUNTY IS CURRENTLY OUT OF
BANKS. RESIDENTS THAT LIVE NEAR LOCAL BAYOUS NEED TO CLOSELY
MONITOR BAYOU WATER LEVEL BEHAVIOR. DUE TO RECENT RUN-OFF
ISSUES...A QUICK BURST OF EXCESSIVE RAINFALL OVER THESE BASINS
WILL PROVIDE FOR RAPID BAYOU WATER RISES.

* TIMING AND LOCATION...PRECIPITATION IS ONGOING BUT SLOWLY
WEAKENING THIS MORNING. A LATE MORNING INTO EARLY AFTERNOON LULL
IS EXPECTED OVER THE MORE POPULATED AREAS OF HARRIS...MONTGOMERY...FORT
BEND...AND GALVESTON COUNTIES WITH A RE-GENERATION EXPECTED BY
MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. PRIMARILY RAIN SHOULD BE FOCUSED FROM
SOUTH OF A BELLVILLE TO CONROE TO LIBERTY LINE....SHIFTING
SOUTHERLY THOUGH THE DAY. DAYTIME HEATING WILL AID IN
REGENERATING ADDITIONAL POCKETS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN OR
SHOWERY WEATHER...WITH VERY LOCALIZED STRONGER CELLS QUICKLY
PRODUCING 2 TO 4 INCH PER HOUR RATES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON
CURRENT FORECASTS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.

DO 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.

TURN AROUND...DON'T DROWN!
