Severe Thunderstorm Watch 130 remains in effect until 1100 am CDT
for the following locations
. Texas counties included are
Brazoria Chambers Fort Bend
Galveston Harris Liberty
Montgomery Polk San Jacinto
1019 PM CDT Fri Apr 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... Brazoria... Brazos... Burleson... Chambers... Colorado...
Fort ... Bend... Galveston... Grimes... Harris... Houston...
Liberty... Madison... Montgomery... Polk... San Jacinto...
Trinity... Walker... Waller... Washington and Wharton.
* Through Sunday morning
* showers and thunderstorms will push across the watch area this
morning. The ground is saturated from recent rainfall. Any
additional localized heavy rainfall rates between 2 and 3 inches
per hour will runoff to produce street flooding and possibly a
rise on area watersheds. The rains should gradually move out of
the region by late morning and early afternoon. Assuming this
occurs... the atmosphere will stabilize for a while and the watch
may be cancelled early. We will monitor the trends. Additional
rounds of precipitation are expected in the coming days however.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 434 am CDT Sat Apr 30 2016 Discussion... radar estimates 1-4" of rain over north/NE portion of the region overnight. Expect precipitation to continue moving east-southeast and across the remainder of southeast Texas between now and late morning. At 4 am...still have nice inflow feeding to the storms with hgx vwp showing south winds ~35kt in the llvls. Observed surface winds in the Bay have been south at 20-30kt since about 11 PM as well. Good upper diffluence should be in place for the next 6-8 hours. Aircraft soundings in the Houston area still show a pesky cap in place that has limited precipitation in the Houston metropolitan area for the past 18 hours or so. However...it's looking like the cold pool in place behind current convection and also the convection moving in from the west should push the precipitation into through the metropolitan area and hopefully offshore before noon. Localized gusty winds will have the potential to knock some trees down due to saturated soil. Since storms are in the area...i'm going to leave Flash Flood Watch in place where it's raining and fcst, but think overall threat will be more localized in nature. I also think there's a fairly decent chance the next shift will be able to cancel the watch assuming the convection does indeed move off the coast later this morning. Deepest moisture should shift eastward and believe atmos will be worked over and threat of flash flood will wane. Could still be some scattered redevelopment with any substantial daytime heating. Frontal boundary dips down into the region today and lingers for the next couple days. This will probably aid in a convergent zone for some scattered precipitation later tonight and Sunday as atmos recovers. Think the next heavier rainfall threat will be sometime between Sunday evening and Monday late afternoon as precipitable waters climb back to around 2", upper diffluence becomes better established and upper disturbances pass overhead. But...as we've seen the past couple days - confidence in timing/details is sketchy at best. Should see a lull in the precipitation Wednesday-Friday as upper ridging builds in. Long ranges guesses show we'll be back to analyzing rain chances late next weekend as ridge moves off to the east and upper trough approaches from the west. 47 && Marine... have extended the current Small Craft Advisory/scec configuration through this middle morning- ing hours given the ongoing trends. Once these storms move out/off to the E/se...we should see improved conditions by this afternoon with this onshore flow remaining in place. Tide issue late this morning/early afternoon (with water run-up along beaches/coastal roads) are not expect- ed to be as big an issue with winds forecast to decrease. Models keeping with the idea of a cold front on Monday. Offshore winds prognosticated across the coastal waters until at least Wednesday/Wednesday night when the center of the surface high settles over the area. Onshore winds set to return/strengthen late Friday on into next weekend if this extended forecast pans out. 41 && Aviation... will be a tricky forecast as one area of strong storms moves out to the east/NE and another approaches from the west. So far most of the activ- ity has been over the northern sites this morning...but southern sites should get their chances late this morning/afternoon with daytime heating/leftover boundaries. 41 && Preliminary point temps/pops...
