Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:56 AM CDT Sep. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

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

* Through this evening

* the remnants of tropical depression Imelda should continue to
drift slowly north today as extremely warm and moist air flows
into southeast Texas today. This moisture will feed the
development of slow moving and training thunderstorms with
rainfall rates of 3 to 5 inches per hour. A persistent swath of
storms across eastern Montgomery, Liberty and Chambers County
should wobble north then south early this morning. Storms should
continue to expand and develop further to the west as far out as
the College Station and Industry areas by mid to late morning.
Eventually a band of rainfall should develop and amounts across
the band of 3-5 inches should be common with isolated amounts
near 10 inches while outside of the band heavy rainfall may be
more scattered in nature with amounts of only 1 to 2 inches.
Some areas such as southern Galveston and Brazoria County may
have lower amounts. The heavy rains will not only cause street
flooding but with the elevated river and bayou levels more
river flooding is likely to occur. The Flash Flood Watch may
need to be extended this evening. The flood threat may begin to
shift further north tonight toward the Madisonville and
Huntsville and Crockett areas.

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.
