.DISCUSSION...
Very dangerous flash flood and severe weather threat continues across
portions of Southeast Texas early this morning mainly to the north of
Interstate 10. Locations north of the Interstate that received amazing
and record shattering rainfall totals during the past 12 to 18 hours
remain at greatest risk for life threatening flash flooding as more
very heavy rainfall moves into the area from the west. A Flash Flood
Emergency is in effect until 815 AM for these areas generally between
College Station and Bellville then eastward to just west of The Woodlands.
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect today for a large part of Southeast
Texas. In addition to the flood threat, there is a risk for severe
thunderstorms with this storm system, and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch
is in effect for a large part of the area until 10 AM. Expect to see
adjustments made to the watches and warnings as the day progresses.
