* A SLOW MOVING FRONT WILL PUSH INTO SOUTHEAST TEXAS SATURDAY
 AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING. THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
 TO DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT DURING THE AFTERNOON.
 A WEAK SEA BREEZE WILL ALSO DEVELOP AND COULD POSSIBLY MERGE
 WITH THE FRONT DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON. THIS SCENARIO COULD
 PRODUCE EXCESSIVE RAINS ALONG THE HIGHWAY 59 CORRIDOR. STORMS
 WILL BE SLOW MOVING AND CAPABLE OF PRODUCING 1 TO 2 INCHES AN
 HOUR. GENERAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES WILL BE
 POSSIBLE BUT THERE MAY BE ISOLATED AREAS OF 4 TO 6 INCHES. ANY
 RAINFALL AMOUNTS OVER 3 INCHES WILL CAUSE FLOODING PROBLEMS.

* GROUNDS ARE ALREADY SATURATED SO ANY ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL
 LIKELY RUN OFF INTO BAYOUS...CREEKS...RIVERS AND LAKES.
 TYPICAL LOW LYING AREAS SUCH AS UNDERPASSES COULD FLOOD
 QUICKLY WITH RAINFALL RATES OF 1 TO 2 INCHES AN HOUR.
 ADDITIONAL RAINFALL COULD PROLONG RIVER FLOODING ACROSS THE
 AREA. HEAVY RAINFALL COULD OCCUR OVERNIGHT SATURDAY WHICH WILL
 INCREASE THE HAZARDS OF FLOODING. IF FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS ARE
 ISSUED IN YOUR AREA...DO NOT DRIVE INTO FLOODED ROADS OR
 UNDERPASSES. TURN AROUND DO NOT DROWN.

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.
