Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:25 PM CDT on September 21, 2014

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 22, 2014


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

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of northwest Texas... including the following areas...
   Garza... Lynn... Terry and Yoakum.

* Through Monday morning

* a very moist airmass coupled with a weak upper level disturbance
will keep the threat of heavy rain in the picture for the South
Plains through tonight. Periods of slow moving showers and
thunderstorms will occur through this evening and perhaps into
early Monday morning as a weak cold front moves in from the
north. Additional rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches... with
locally higher amounts... will be likely. This heavy rain will
fall on already saturated ground bringing the risk of additional
flooding.

* Areal flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas...
including low lying roadways... near Playa Lakes..and along
creeks and draws. Pockets of flash flooding will be possible
with the most intense rain in areas prone to rapid runoff such
as the edge of The Caprock Escarpment.

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 advisories and warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop.
