LIBERTY, Febuary 20, 2017 - The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Southeast Texas.
* From late tonight through Monday afternoon
* The combination of an approaching upper level storm system from
the west and well above normal moisture levels will set the
stage for widespread thunderstorm development with locally heavy
rainfall. The flash flood threat will begin across western
portions of southeast Texas during the early morning hours and
will slowly progress eastward during the day. Rainfall amounts
are expected to average between 1 to 3 inches across the watch
area with localized areas expected to receive between 4 and 6
inches of rainfall. These localized rainfall amounts when coupled
with wet soils from previous rainfall would lead to flash flooding.
* Street flooding and flooding of low lying areas are the most
likely impacts tonight and Monday. Small streams and bayous may
be impacted during the day on Monday.
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.
