The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of south central Texas and
southeast Texas...including the following south
central Texas...Coastal Jackson and Inland Jackson. In
southeast Texas...Austin...Brazoria Islands...Brazos...
Burleson...Chambers...Coastal Brazoria...Coastal Galveston...
Coastal Harris...Coastal Matagorda...Colorado...Fort Bend...
Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula...Grimes...Houston...
Inland Brazoria...Inland Galveston...Inland Harris...Inland
Matagorda...Madison...Matagorda Islands...Montgomery...
Northern Liberty...Polk...San Jacinto...Southern Liberty...
Trinity...Walker...Waller...Washington and Wharton.

* From Friday afternoon through Saturday morning

* A cold front and potent upper level system are forecast to move
across the area and produce locally heavy rainfall Friday
afternoon into Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6
inches are expected over most of the area but isolated spots
could see as much as 8 to 10 inches. Rainfall should be coming
to an end early Saturday morning from the west and clear the
coast by Saturday afternoon.

* This episode of heavy rainfall could result in isolated flash
flooding along area roadways, underpasses and low lying areas as
well as small creeks and tributaries.


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.

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.
