Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 2:40 PM CDT on April 29, 2016


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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

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

* Through Sunday morning

Unusually moist tropical air will continue to flow into the area
this afternoon and overnight. Storms will develop to the north
and west of the region this afternoon then expand into the
region overnight. The ground is saturated and any rainfall will
rapidly convert to runoff. These storms will be capable of
intense rainfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour. These storms
may become anchored in an east to west band with storms moving
north north colliding with the boundary and probably
intensifying rain rates. Where the boundary sets up is still
difficult to pinpoint but probably in the zone between the
Interstate 10 corridor and College Station and Huntsville.
Rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches should be widespread over the
watch area with localized amounts of 7 to 10 inches. Street
flooding may become widespread in the watch area and travel
overnight should be reconsidered. Rivers and streams across the
watch area may quickly flood with the heavy rainfall. Stay
informed on the weather overnight.

The rains should gradually move out of the region Saturday
afternoon. More storms may form Sunday and then another system
arrives Monday and Tuesday bringing more rainfall.


* Streets... bayous... streams and rivers will likely have the
greatest impacts from the heavy rainfall. Motorists and persons
with outdoor activities should stay ado 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.Breast of the latest
forecasts and have contingency plans in place when the heavy
rain arrives late this afternoon and tonight.

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 
843 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Update... 
may have dodged the bullet with the first round across most of 
southeastern Texas as diurnal storms failed to sustain themselves with 
limited convergence/upper support and modest capping in place. 
Eyes will turn to the west as we monitor the strong/severe storms 
over central Texas along surface trough and dry line as this 
activity continues east overnight. Could still see a few showers 
ahead of this activity...but most of our rain potential tonight 
may now be tied to broken line moving into our area after 06z. 
Abundant moisture remains anchored over southeastern Texas with axis of 
1.5-2" precipitable waters  in place so potential for heavy rain remains early 
Saturday morning...although /fortunately/ overall totals may be 
less than earlier thought. Regardless will keep Flash Flood Watch 
in place given the amount of moisture/instability remaining and 
the possibility of high rainfall rates and saturated soils. 


Scenario will be complicated moving through tomorrow depending on 
effects from early morning activity. If these storms push through 
as an organized mesoscale convective system...wind damage would remain a possibility 
overnight. This could then work-over air mass enough to reduce 
thunderstorm potential in its wake for much of the day. However if this 
activity weakens and or leaves a boundary across the region...we 
could see increased thunderstorm/heavy rain potential tomorrow. 


Have updated forecast grids to account for above mentioned 
scenario...bumping back probability of precipitation/quantitative precipitation forecast a bit overnight.

Previous discussion... /issued 637 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016/ 


Aviation... 
low to moderate confidence forecast. Moisture axis from Matagorda 
Bay to kcll to Madison County should slowly move eastward through 
the night. Showers and thunderstorms were developing within the 
moist axis. Model solutions differed...however there was enough 
consensus between the GFS/nam12/rap13 to try and time the event 
tonight and Saturday. Terminals were based on the nam12 and rap13 
and the previous package.
