URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Flood Watch
National Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
303 PM CDT Sat Sep 23 2017

...Flash Flood Watch in effect until Sunday morning along and west
of a line from Seminole to Andrews to Pecos to Presidio...

.A strong upper trough centered over NV this morning will slowly
wobble east. As it does southwest flow aloft will set up ahead of
it and allow disturbances to track across the region. These
disturbances will help initiate showers and thunderstorms over
the area. The combination of these disturbances along with good
low and mid level moisture will create the potential for heavy
rain... especially with slow moving or training storms...
therefore a Flash Flood Watch has been issued. This watch may be
extended in time or expanded in coverage.
