Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 5:34 PM CDT Sep. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Friday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Austin... Brazoria islands... Brazos... Burleson...
Chambers... coastal Brazoria... coastal Galveston... coastal
Harris... Fort Bend... Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula...
Grimes... inland Brazoria... inland Galveston... inland Harris...
Montgomery... northern Liberty... Polk... San Jacinto... southern
Liberty... Trinity... Walker... Waller and Washington.

* Through Friday morning

* the remnants of tropical depression Imelda should continue to
drift slowly north tonight as extremely warm and moist air flows
into southeast Texas. While the bulk of the heaviest rains have
moved off to the south, scattered showers and thunderstorms will
persist through the early evening hours. A brief break is
possible later tonight but we could see showers redevelop
overnight or early Friday morning. Given the very saturated
grounds and watersheds, it would not take much rain to
exacerbate these conditions once again. The flood threat may
begin to shift further north late tomorrow as the remnants of
Imelda move off to the northeast.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is
observed... act quickly. Move up to escape flood waters. Do not
stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
