Texas, Kent

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:55 AM CDT on September 20, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on September 20, 2014


... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of northwest Texas... including the following
areas... Bailey... Cochran... Crosby... Dickens... Floyd... Garza... Hale...
Hockley... Kent... Lamb... Lubbock... Lynn... Motley... Terry and
Yoakum.

* Through this evening

* a very moist airmass will remain across the Texas South Plains
region today as a weak upper level disturbance with tropical
connections remains overhead. The combination will bring the
potential for intermittent periods of heavy rainfall into this
evening. Additional rain totals of 1 to 2 inches will be
possible... with locally higher amounts. Runoff will be enhanced
with wet grounds less able to hold additional rainfall causing a
risk of areal flooding or localized flash 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.
