446 am CDT Wed Sep 18 2019

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

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Brazoria islands... Chambers... coastal Brazoria...
coastal Galveston... coastal Harris... coastal Matagorda... Fort
Bend... Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula... inland
Brazoria... inland Galveston... inland Harris... inland
Matagorda... Matagorda islands... northern Liberty... southern
Liberty and Wharton.

* Through Thursday morning 7 am.

* The remnants of tropical storm Imelda in western Montgomery
County early this morning will continue slowly very slowly drift
and wobble northward today. Deep tropical moisture will continue
to stream into the region today through Thursday fueling the
redevelopment of showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall rates of 2
to 4 inches per hour will accompany the stronger storms.
Eventually this afternoon another band of storms is expected to
develop and focus the heavier amounts inland in the watch area.
Locally heavy will be possible across the watch area. Some areas
generally along and south of a Bay City to Manvel to South
Houston to Liberty have had periods of heavy rainfall already
and with rainfall totals of 3-9 inches. Additional rainfall on
top of these already hard hit areas will quickly become runoff
and lead to worsening flood conditions.

* The Flash Flood Watch has been expanded and extended and will
probably need to be modified on Thursday as the heaviest
rainfall threat should start to focus over the eastern areas and
away from the immediate coast.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is
observed... act quickly. Move up to escape flood waters. Do not
stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
