Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 12:52 PM CDT on May 27, 2015

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 28, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 7 PM CDT this evening through
Thursday morning...

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of south central Texas...
including the following areas... Bastrop... blanco... Burnet...
Caldwell... Gillespie... Hays... Lee... Llano... Travis and
Williamson.

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Thursday morning

* showers and thunderstorms capable of producing locally heavy
rainfall are expected to develop and move across The Hill
Country and parts of Interstate 35 (including the Austin Metro
area). Rainfall totals of one quarter to half inch are
expected... with isolated amounts up to 2 inches possible.

* Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in the
area... rapid flash flooding of low water crossings and some
roadways will be possible where heavy rain develops. Many rivers
and streams remain out of banks or in flood. Additional rainfall
will extend the time at or near crest levels and delay the
recession.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means flash flooding is possible in or near
the watch area. If you are in the watch area... plan now for what
you will do if flash flooding develops. Stay informed and be
ready to act if you see flooding or if a Flash Flood Warning is
issued.
