THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A WEAKENING LINE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE MOVING INTO
THE REGION FROM THE NORTHWEST THIS MORNING. EXPECT SOME 20 TO 35 MPH
GUSTS IN ASSOCIATION WITH STRONGER CELLS ALONG THE LEADING LINE.
MOST LOCATIONS SHOULD SEE LESS THAN AN 3/4 INCH OF RAINFALL BUT
VERY LOCALIZED 2 INCH AMOUNTS ARE NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION. WE WILL
BE MONITORING AREAS THAT HAVE SEEN THE COPIOUS RAINFALL AMOUNTS
EARLIER IN THE WEEK. HOWEVER...ASSUMING THIS COMPLEX DOES NOT SLOW
DOWN AND CONTINUES MOVING WE ARE NOT EXPECTING WIDESPREAD FLOOD
PROBLEMS.

ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP NORTH OF THE REGION
AND MOVE INTO THE NORTHERN HALF OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS OVERNIGHT.
THE FLASH FLOOD THREAT FROM ADDITIONAL RAIN NORTH OF A BRENHAM TO
LIVINGSTON LINE WILL AGAIN NEED TO BE MONITORED AS GROUNDS ARE
NEARLY SATURATED AND CANNOT HANDLE MUCH HEAVY RAIN.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

ON MONDAY...EXPECT LINGERING PRECIPITATION FROM THE COMPLEX OF
STORMS THAT MOVES INTO SOUTHEAST TEXAS TONIGHT.

FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK...SCATTERED MAINLY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED EACH DAY ACROSS
INLAND LOCATIONS. ISOLATED STRONGER CELLS MAY PRODUCE STRONG WINDS
AND LOCALIZED HEAVY DOWNPOURS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

REPORTS OF FLOODING OR SEVERE WEATHER ARE ENCOURAGED THROUGH THE
WEEK.
