Flood Warning Until 7:00 PM Tonight

LIBERTY, September 19, 2014 – Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch informed i-dineout.com today that the current batch of widespread rainfall near I-10 and to the southeast is gradually weakening late this morning. Hourly rainfall rates have recently decreased to 1/4 of an inch to around 1 inch an hour, as opposed to the 2 to 4 inch an hour rainfall rates we saw during the early morning hours across portions of western Harris (near Katy) and across southern Montgomery counties.

The Flood watch is being adjusted and shortened to go through 7 PM today for areas generally along and south of a Bellville to Conroe to Liberty line. We expect some re-development later this afternoon across the watch area, but we are not very confident on the extent of the coverage. I do not think we will see widespread heavy rainfall this afternoon or early this evening, but we could have some isolated areas receiving an additional 2 to 3 inches of rain and that could be problematic given our saturated ground conditions. We have not seen much lightning with this activity, as it is warm at the mid-levels of the atmosphere. So, although isolated lightning strikes are possible, we do not expect much lightning, as most of the convection is showery due to the tropical airmass that is in place.

So, although I can not speak for field conditions, the evening weather conditions will likely allow for Friday night football across most of the area, granted there is still some uncertainty, and keeping an eye on the radar this evening is a good idea.
