Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 3:16 PM CDT on April 17, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Austin... Brazoria... Brazos... Burleson... Chambers...
Colorado... Fort Bend... Galveston... Grimes... Harris... Houston...
Jackson... Liberty... Madison... Matagorda... Montgomery... Polk...
San Jacinto... Trinity... Walker... Waller... Washington and
Wharton.

* Through Saturday morning

* the watch is based upon training heavy rains that could commence
this evening as the atmosphere destabilizes ahead of an
approaching large western storm system. The ground over much of
the area is at or nearly saturated as some areas received 4 to 8
inches of rain last night. Additional overnight into early
Saturday morning rainfall will likely become run off leading to
flooding. Rainfall totals tonight through early Saturday may
average around one to two inches... with isolated amounts of 3
to 4 inches are possible.

* Additional amounts of greater than two inches will likely generate
flash flooding as precipitation will quickly become run off.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

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

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
517 am CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Discussion... 
much quieter in the wake of the evening Bow echo and heavy rain. 
Complex in the Gulf will move out of the area early this morning 
as weak boundary sags south through the coastal counties before 
sunrise. Light NE flow behind the boundary and wave along the 
boundary nearing Matagorda Bay area. Tropical moisture continues 
to stream overhead but atmosphere has been worked over by the 
evening storm complex. Looking at the morning soundings via acars 
out of iah/hou the cap appears to be stronger than models forecast 
by 1.5-2.0c at 850mb. This should help to limit storms this 
morning over the areas hardest hit the last few days but will 
still see some over the far northern counties but likely not 
severe. This afternoon though things get Dicey again as two 
impulses...one crossing The Big Bend region and another embedded 
in the Pacific tap west of Brownsville track east and northeast 
toward the Upper Texas coast and southeast Texas. Afternoon 
temperatures reach 78-80 degrees over most of the region which 
should help to destabilize the atmosphere but model soundings may 
be overdoing the ll moisture and under forecasting the cap. This 
leads to lower confidence that the area will see scattered to 
numerous thunderstorms. Have pared back the probability of precipitation and current 
thinking is that areas generally along and south of a line from 
Columbus to Conroe to Liberty could see isolated severe 
thunderstorms...pulse type with damaging winds and hail threat 
this afternoon. Brief heavy downpours possible but significant 
rainfall in excess of 1.5" appear slim given storm motion and more 
isolated nature of the strong storms. Have dropped the Flood 
Watch but the ground is wet and if storms slow down or happen to 
cluster up do to mesoscale effects then some minor street flooding 
may occur given the saturated ground around the region. After 
these two disturbances depart the area in the evening rain chances 
drop off. The cold front in Colorado/KS/NE should move south and come 
through southeast Texas Sunday evening and/or early Monday morning. A few 
showers and thunderstorms will be possible with the front. 


Dry weather finally on Monday as high pressure quickly slides into 
netx then off to la/MS ending the northerly flow and we go back to 
easterly flow Monday night and Tuesday. Moist Pacific air will 
stream into the region again from the west-southwest and rain chances return 
Tuesday in the western area. Rain chances remain with the SW flow 
aloft and an upper trough that moves into the 4 corners area 
Friday. At this time it doesn't look like a heavy rain threat should 
return before Thursday night so a good chance to drain off the 
rains and for the rivers to drop. 


Hydro...over this weekend some river flooding issues mainly along 
the lower reaches of the Lavaca/west Mustang/san Bernard basins. 
Out of banks to possibly moderate flooding. See the latest flood 
warnings and river statements for details. 


Pns statements issued early highlight the high wind reports and 
greater rain amounts.

Marine... 


Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the 
coastal waters today as disturbances track across the region ahead 
of a much larger storm system over The Four Corners region. Little 
change in the remainder of the marine forecast... with onshore flow 
briefly becoming offshore Sunday night into Monday as The Four 
Corners low crosses the Southern Plains and sends a cold front 
across the coastal waters. Winds may briefly approach caution 
criteria with the cold front early Monday. Easterly winds resume 
Tuesday as surface high pressure departs the region... with 
thunderstorm chances also increasing middle to late next week as 
another storm system approaches Baja California California.
