...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS...INCLUDING
  THE FOLLOWING COUNTIES...IN SOUTHEAST TEXAS...JACKSON. IN
  SOUTHEAST TEXAS...AUSTIN...BRAZORIA...CHAMBERS...COLORADO...
  FORT BEND...GALVESTON...HARRIS...LIBERTY...MATAGORDA...WALLER

* THROUGH THIS EVENING

* AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE SHOULD MOVE THROUGH THE REGION TODAY
  BRINGING MORE RAIN MIXED WITH HEAVIER SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
  BRIEF HEAVY RAINS WILL BE POSSIBLE MAINLY THIS MORNING AND EARLY
  AFTERNOON. MOST OF THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL SHOULD BE OVER THE
  COASTAL COUNTIES. AFTER THE RAINFALL SATURDAY ACROSS THE REGION
  AND ESPECIALLY NEAR THE COAST THE SOILS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO
  ABSORB AS MUCH RAINFALL. ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINS TODAY COULD
  QUICKLY LEAD TO STREET FLOODING AND POSSIBLY RISES ON AREA
  BAYOUS AND STREAMS. ADDITIONAL AMOUNTS OF UP TO 3 INCHES WILL BE
  POSSIBLE TODAY AND ISOLATED AMOUNTS MAY APPROACH 5 INCHES THOUGH
  THE GREATER ISOLATED AMOUNTS MAY BE CLOSER TO THE IMMEDIATE
  COAST. TO FURTHER COMPLICATE THINGS...ELEVATED WATER LEVELS IN
  THE BAYS AND NEARSHORE GULF WILL DELAY DRAINAGE OF WATER.

* STREET FLOODING AND FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS WILL BE THE MOST
  LIKELY IMPACT. AS EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...AREA RIVERS...STREAMS
  AND BAYOUS WERE WITHIN BANKS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
