 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 10:35 am CDT on May 30, 2015


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

* a slow moving front will push into southeast Texas Saturday
afternoon through Sunday morning. Thunderstorms are expected
to develop along and ahead of the front during the afternoon.
A weak sea breeze will also develop and could possibly merge
with the front during the late afternoon. This scenario could
produce excessive rains along the Highway 59 corridor. Storms
will be slow moving and capable of producing 1 to 2 inches an
hour. General rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be
possible but there may be isolated areas of 4 to 6 inches. Any
rainfall amounts over 3 inches will cause flooding problems.

* Grounds are already saturated so any additional rainfall will
likely run off into bayous... creeks... rivers and lakes.
Typical low lying areas such as underpasses could flood
quickly with rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour.
Additional rainfall could prolong river flooding across the
area. Heavy rainfall could occur overnight Saturday which will
increase The Hazards of flooding. If flash flood warnings are
issued in your area... do not drive into flooded roads or
underpasses. Turn around do not drown.

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 
1056 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Discussion... 
outflow boundary has pushed into southeast Texas from convection over North Texas 
this morning. This along with diurnal heating have allowed for a 
few scattered showers and storms to form mainly along US 59 from Houston 
to Lufkin. Other isolated covective cells have formed from Columbus to 
Palacios. Most of this activity seems to pulse in intensity with 
maybe rain rates of half inch an hour. The main trend to note is 
that storms are not moving very much. Latest surface analysis has cold 
front pushing through North Texas into west c Texas. Front should be making its 
way to southeast Texas this afternoon. Beginning of the front should reach 
College Station/Crockett line 3-4pm and then Houston area 6-7pm 
based on latest hrrr run. 


Latest short range guidance still has storms forming on sea 
breeze early afternoon and then along the front later this 
afternoon. Main concern will be for heavy rainfall as storms will 
not be moving quikcly. Rain rates of 1-2 inches for a couple of 
hours will cause flooding problems. We are still looking at very 
saturated grounds which means even 2-3 inches of rain could cause 
flooding problems. For now we will keep Flash Flood Watch as is 
but will evaluate the need for a watch for some of the northern 
portions of the forecast area depending on the evolution of 
convection.

see the 12z aviation discussion below.

Aviation... 
the squall line over The Hill Country may hold together to affect 
kcll and kuts before 15z. The latest high res models are holding 
back on thunderstorm chances at these two sites until middle morning. 
This may pan out as the latest radar indicates that the squall 
line was weakening at 11z as it was moving toward the kgrk radar 
site. Will update the forecast for these locations if these storms 
hold together. 


Kept the same timing for the most part as in the last forecast 
package. By middle morning better chances for showers will develop 
and by midday thunderstorm chances will become better. There are 
some indications that the storms moving in from the northwest will 
merge with showers and thunderstorms developing along the 
seabreeze. If so...the Houston metropolitan airports may have adverse 
impacts from thunderstorms from 18z to 03z. After a break...the 
nam12 brings another chance for thunderstorms from kcxo to the 
coast after 09z.

Previous discussion... /issued 400 am CDT Sat may 30 2015/ 


Discussion... 
at 3 am...a cold front extended from about Oklahoma City to 
Abilene to Fort Stockton. Rain showers/thunderstorms and rain continue to develop along the 
front as it surges south...and pushes east a bit more slowly. 
Satellite derived precipitable water values show 1.6-1.9 inches across southeast 
Texas. Forecast soundings show convective temperatures around 82 degrees. 
Upper level winds are broadly divergent and are prognosticated to remain 
divergent through Sunday morning. Southeast Texas will briefly lie in a 
right rear quadrant Saturday night. Rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will begin to develop 
along the coast between 15-17z as temperatures warm into the lower 80s. 
The cold front over North Texas will be pushing south and east and 
will reach the northern zones about 18z. The sea breeze will begin 
to work inland during the afternoon as the front continues to push 
south and the two features should merge over southeast Texas during the 
afternoon. The NAM 12 is very aggressive with the sea breeze/front 
colliding around 21z with very heavy rain developing along the 
U.S. Highway 59 corridor. The NAM is producing 3-4 inches of rain 
across Harris...Brazoria and feet Bend counties. The quantitative precipitation forecast output from 
the GFS and European model (ecmwf) are more benign but they are basically on the 
same Page with a weak sea breeze merging with the cold front. Will 
maintain the Flash Flood Watch as is but feel the threat for 
excessive rain will focus over the central zones. Think the watch 
will be trimmed from the north toward evening once convective 
trends become clear. 


The front will meander over the southern half of southeast Texas 
through early Sunday morning. The combination of the front and a 
trough at 500 mb will lead to additional showers overnight into 
Sunday. Drier air will work into the area Sunday afternoon and 
rain chances will decrease during the afternoon. 


The upper level trough will push east on Monday but it looks 
close enough to still trigger a few afternoon rain showers/thunderstorms and rain over the 
eastern zones on Monday. Upper level ridging will build across south 
Texas Tue-Fri. Subsidence from the ridge should limit rain chances 
and allow temperatures to warm to near 90 degrees by the end of next 
week. 43 


Marine... 
winds and seas may briefly get to above caution levels with 
thunderstorms later today and tonight. A frontal boundary is 
forecast by the models to move off the coast later tonight or on 
Sunday. The front is then forecast to dissipate as high pressure 
builds into the northwestern Gulf into the middle week period.
