Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 3:01 PM CDT on May 24, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Monday morning through Monday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of southeast Texas... including
the following counties... Austin... Brazos... Burleson...
Colorado... Grimes... Harris... Houston... Liberty... Madison...
Montgomery... Polk... San Jacinto... Trinity... Walker... Waller
and Washington.

* From Monday morning through Monday evening

* the next upper level disturbance will move into central Texas on
Monday. Expect this disturbance to trigger another shower and
thunderstorm complex to our west. This system should be moving
into western parts of the area toward mid morning and across the
remainder of the region through the afternoon hours. Upper level
conditions are again favorable for training strong storms. There
is some uncertainty just how fast the system will move out and
some locations could see precipitation continue into the
evening. In general... expect 1 to 3 inch rainfall amounts in
the watch area... especially north of Interstate 10 where
conditions are more favorable for the higher amounts. Localized
higher totals are possible where training cells occur... and also
if the event drags on into the evening hours. This watch will
need to be expanded in time if it does.

* Impacts... the ground remains saturated and additional heavy rain
in a short time period will run off and create flash flooding
and additional rises on already swollen rivers.

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.






 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 4:37 PM CDT on May 24, 2015


... NWS damage survey for 05/24/2015 tornado event...
... EF1 tornado confirmed in southwest Houston...

Rating: EF- 1
estimated peak wind: 105 mph
path length /statute/: approx 1 mile
path width /maximum/: 50 yards
fatalities: none
injuries: 4 minor

Start date: 05/24/2015
start time: approx 630-635am CDT
start lat/lon: 29.674/-95.528

End date: 05/24/2015
end time: approx 635-640am CDT
end location: 29.681/-95.526

Survey results indicate a fast moving tornado briefly touched down at Two Points
early Sunday morning. The first area of damage was low-end EF1 and EF0 damage to
a storage facility along and just west of gessner Rd. The second area began just
north of bissonnet St. And just east of gessner Rd. And impacted an apartment complex.
This is where the minor injuries and more significant damage occurred. Most of the
damage was EF0, however one location had complete roof removal and evidence of some
interior wall compromise consistent with EF1 damage. 12 story glass facade building
just south of the complex along bissonnet St. Had several north-facing windows blown
out indicative of rotation with the damaging winds.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes
into the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph
EF3... strong... .136 to 165 mph
EF4... violent... 166 to 200 mph
EF5... violent... >200 mph*

Note:
the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to change
pending final review of the event and publication in NWS storm data.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
622 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


Aviation... 
clouds are in the process of moving eastward and out of the area. Could 
see some MVFR ceiling and possible fog development at some of the sites 
overnight. Going with vcsh for possible middle morning shower development... 
then thunderstorms and rain for the afternoon hours as the next batch of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain develops 
and move across the area. Things quiet down tomorrow evening as activity 
comes to an end. 42 
&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 344 PM CDT sun may 24 2015/ 


Discussion... 
seeing some scattered thunderstorms and rain redevelop across north parts of the area where 
heating and rrq of departing jet are working their magic. 
Anticipate these to taper off shortly after sunset. In the 
meantime...can still see some isolated strong storms/downpours that'll 
need to be monitored. 


Overnight system made much quicker eastward progress than expected 
yesterday and is well into cntl la. (Faster nam12 actually did a 
respectable job). Also see no lingering surface boundary along I-10 
on current surface observations that some models were indicating for 
tonight - serving as a focus for possible overnight convection as 
onshore flow and low level jet feeds into it. Only Canadian and possibly later 
Storm Prediction Center hrrr runs depict such a scenario now - the rest (including 
ecmwf) keep the region mostly dry overnight. This gives US a bit 
more confidence in a drier overnight period than earlier - but 
still no guaranty. Have slightly lowered probability of precipitation in response. 


Next impulse seen on west/v imagery in southern Nevada will move across 
the state Monday. Expect this disturbance to trigger another shower and 
thunderstorm complex to our west. This system should be moving 
into western parts of the area toward middle morning and across the 
remainder of the region through the afternoon hours. Issued 
another Flash Flood Watch from middle morning into the evening Monday for 
locations generally along and north of I-10. There is some uncertainty 
regarding how fast the system will move out and some locations 
might see precipitation continue into the evening. In general...expect 
1 to 3 inch rainfall amounts in the watch area and less so further 
south. Localized higher totals are possible where training cells 
occur...and also if the event drags on into the evening hours. 
This watch will need to be expanded in time if it does. 


In addition to training storms...dynamics west/ this system also 
look favorable for some strong/severe storms with wind damage and 
tornadoes being the primary threat. Grounds are wet and trees are 
more prone to be blown down with less intense winds than they 
might otherwise. 


Spoke about the uncertainty about Monday night regarding timing of 
the exit of precipitation. Will just need to watch trends. Remainder of 
the work week would anticipate scattered (mainly afternoon/evng) precipitation each 
day across inland areas. Another trough approaches the neighborhood 
going into next weekend...along west/ higher probability of precipitation unfortunately. 47 


Marine... 
looks like a reprise from widespread thunderstorms over the bays and 
Gulf waters until at least later tonight and likely until Monday. 
The pressure gradient looks to weaken a bit tonight...but then 
tighten back up on Monday before weakening again Monday evening. For 
the most part expect advisory conditions through Monday 
afternoon...although the winds could diminish slightly below 21 
knots tonight at least over the bays and nearshore waters. 


Regarding The Tides...Galveston Channel and the North Jetty both 
recorded tide levels of about reached about 1.2 feet above normal 
levels during the time of the astronomical high tide earlier today. 
Tide levels are expected to be slightly lower late tomorrow morning 
during the high tide time. Even so...wave run up could still present 
some problems with minor flooding on low lying areas along the Gulf 
facing beaches of the Bolivar Peninsula from late morning to early 
afternoon on Monday.
