Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 4:47 am CDT on May 23, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from this evening 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... 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.

* From this evening through Monday evening

* a slow moving upper level low pressure complex will tap into
Pacific moisture and Gulf moisture to bring heavy rainfall to
the region. Two systems are expected to slowly move through the
region. The first should arrive in the western portions of the
area tonight then shift eastward Sunday. The second is expected
Monday and continue into the late evening hours Monday. These
storms may hit the same areas and will be capable of intense
rain rates. Widespread accumulations of 2 to 4 inches is
expected across all of southeast Texas Sunday and Monday.
Isolated totals of 8 to 11 inches are likely.

* Impacts... with the ground across the area saturated and the
larger river swollen from the heavy rains of the last few weeks
the threat of flash flooding is high as is the threat of
mainstem river flooding. The intense rain rates and the
likelihood of storms moving over the same areas in quick
succession will produce street flooding. Over time the river may
climb out of banks with mainstem river flooding and significant
major flooding is a possibility.

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 
534 am CDT Sat may 23 2015 


Short term... 
today through Sunday. 


..a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for southeast Texas this evening 
through Monday evening... 


A relatively quiet start to Memorial Day weekend for the region will 
quickly give way to a stormy end... with severe weather... river and 
flash flooding... and hazardous marine conditions expected over the 
next 36 hours. Early morning water vapor imagery showed an upper low 
churning over southern Nevada with a shortwave trough rotating 
around this feature into west central Texas... with another 
shortwave trough located farther upstream near the Washington/Oregon 
border. 06z surface analysis depicting warm and moist air pushing 
back into the region /dew points in the low to middle 70s/ behind a 
warm front stretching from north of Midland to near the d/fw 
metroplex southeast towards the Sabine Pass. A developing surface 
trough was noted extending from southeast Colorado to eastern New 
Mexico and... as this feature deepens today in response to an 
approaching upper low... southerly to southeasterly winds will 
increase across the region. 


Given an incredibly moist airmass... diurnally driven showers and 
thunderstorms will develop late this morning and into the afternoon 
as convective temperatures are reached. One or two of these storms 
may be able to become strong /with enough shear present to offer 
some hope for organization... but weak lapse rates will help limit 
this potential/. Will carry 40-50 probability of precipitation this afternoon for this 
scattered activity with better chances for severe weather later 
tonight and into Sunday morning as a thunderstorm complex 
/associated with the first shortwave trough/ approaches from the 
west. Good low level shear /0-1 km bulk shear values around 25 to 30 
knots/ will create concerns for isolated tornadoes with the 
thunderstorm complex as well as the potential for some damaging wind 
if sections of the line do Bow. High-resolution guidance places the 
leading edge of this activity in the western zones before sunrise on 
Sunday with rain spreading across the region by midday. This complex 
looks to clear the region sometime Sunday evening. 


Additionally... the combination of precipitable water values near 2 
inches... moist low level inflow /dew points in the low 70s and a 40 
knot low level jet feeding into the approaching complex/... forcing 
from the passing shortwave trough... and the region/S location under 
the right rear quadrant of an upper jet on Sunday spell out a 
potentially dangerous flash flood environment for parts of southeast 
Texas on Sunday. Widespread accumulations of 2 to 4 inches will be 
possible Sunday into Monday... with locally higher amounts 
approaching 8 to 11 inches possible. Flash flood guidance has shown 
some improvement over the past few days /1 hour guidance generally 
around 3 inches/... but column integrated soil moisture remains 
around 65 to 70 percent per the NASA-sport land information system 
and it won't take much to cause problems... especially if higher 
rainfall rates are achieved.

Long term... 
Sunday night through Friday. 
Flash Flood Watch continues through Monday. 


A complex/swath of storms with heavy rain should be moving east 
out of the area Sunday night. Maddox fast training flash flooding 
scenario should be coming to an end but concerns remain as the 
upper low is still over nm/Colorado and a very favorable coupled jet 
structure remains over southeast Texas. Precipitable water remain at 1.8 to 2.1 with k index 
values of 35 to 40 blanket much of the area. It is possible that 
the initial short wave swings through and short term ridging in the wake 
of it brings a lull to the area Sunday night but concerned that 
with low level jet still hanging in there around 25-30 knots that the first 
system could leave an east to west boundary for more storms to 
form on primarily in the southern half of the region. Then during 
the day Monday the next short wave approaches and low level jet intensifies 
transporting the next slug of moisture back into the area and sets 
the stage for round 2 (or 3). Though the soundings look more 
unstable on Monday and 1000-500mb layer moisture is down the heavy 
rain threat is still very high. With these successive rounds of 
heavy rainfall-little chance for runoff to dissipate-the flooding 
threat could be even worse on Monday. Rainfall totals for the 
event of 2-4 inches widespread and isolated totals of 8-11 inches 
seems quite reasonable. Unfortunately if all the cheese holes line 
up then amounts much higher could occur. This could be a very 
dangerous situation Monday. In addition the threat of severe is 
possible but for now think it is more prudent to focus the threat 
on the heavy rain even though the 06z NAM/European model (ecmwf) favor a highly 
sheared environment...the mesoscale factors may be a big player by 
the time Monday rolls around. Monday night/Tuesday morning the 
axis of richest moisture transport shifts out to the east and 
another break could occur. Some of the guidance is still showing 
the potential for more heavy rain on Tuesday with a rain cooled 
boundary but with lighter winds through most of the column. 


Wednesday through Friday the pattern should transition to more of 
a diurnally driven pattern with daytime heating the main mechanism 
as upper ridging sets up for a couple of days but not strong 
enough to end the precipitation. Temperatures do finally bounce back up 
to normal by Wednesday and Thursday.

Marine... 


An approaching storm system from the west will result in increasing 
onshore winds and seas over the coastal waters today... and small 
craft advisories are in effect beginning this evening. 
Additionally... a thunderstorm complex may reach the coastal 
waters by Sunday morning and further deterioration of marine 
conditions are expected in and near this complex with heavy 
rain...lightning... and locally enhanced winds and waves possible. 
Another round of thunderstorms will be possible over the coastal 
waters on Monday. Also on Sunday and Monday... above normal tides 
combining with swells may lead to minor flooding on the Gulf 
facing beaches of the Bolivar Peninsula. An elevated risk for rip 
currents will also continue along the Upper Texas coast through 
the remainder of the weekend.
