Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:25 PM CST on December 04, 2016

Expires 1:00 PM EST on December 05, 2016


... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Monday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Brazoria... Chambers... Galveston... Harris and
Liberty.

* Through Monday morning

* the combination of steady light rainfall today and excessive
amounts that fell across parts of the area on Saturday... grounds
are saturated. A coastal low will develop off the Lower Texas
coast move toward the Upper Texas coast overnight and on
Monday. Another round of rain with embedded storms are expected
as this occurs. Any training heavier cells that develop across
the watch area will quickly runoff and produce flash flooding.
Drainage will again be slow since tide levels in the Bay and
nearshore Gulf are expected to increase again. In
general... expect another 3/4 inch to 2 inches through early
Monday afternoon with localized much higher amounts a
possibility. In this situation... it is important to focus on the
shorter term rainfall rates than the total forecast
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...

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.
