Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:40 PM CDT on September 18, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on September 19, 2014

... Flood Watch now in effect through 7pm CDT Friday evening...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Austin... Brazoria... Chambers... Colorado... Fort
Bend... Galveston... Harris... Jackson... Liberty... Matagorda...
Montgomery... Waller... Washington and Wharton.

* Through 7pm CDT Friday evening

* showers and thunderstorms have ended over the area for tonight.
However additional showers and thunderstorms may develop along a
frontal boundary from south of Brenham to Houston to Galveston.
These areas have already received 1 to 3 inches of rain on
average with some localized areas of 5 inches of rain. Any
additional rainfall will quickly run off and cause flooding in
low lying areas and allow for bayous to quickly rise. These
storms will again be capable of 2 inch an hour rainfall rates
and another 1 to 3 inches of rainfall will be possible. This
additional rainfall could cause flooding again.

* Timing... storms could develop again south of Brenham from 4am to
9am with additional storms through the afternoon. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms may continue into the late afternoon
and dissipate with the loss of day time heating.

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

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to
cross safely. Vehicles caught in rising water should be abandoned
quickly. If your vehicle stalls... abandon it and seek higher
ground immediately. Rapidly rising water may engulf your vehicle
and its occupants and sweep them away. Move to higher ground.

Turn around... don't drown!
