...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM CDT THIS
AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of southeast Texas...including the following
  counties...Brazoria...Chambers...Fort Bend...Galveston...
  Harris and Liberty.

* Until 1 PM CDT this afternoon

* An upper level disturbance will be passing overhead today and
  generate showers and thunderstorms across the region. On
  average, 1 to 3 inches of rain can be expected over the watch
  area. Most of the region can handle these totals with minimal
  impacts. However, a surface low situated closer to the coast may
  focus periods of much heavier downpours and lead to some much
  higher rain totals as it moves east today...possibly in excess
  of 5 inches at some locations. This would lead to some flash
  flooding issues such as street, creek and possibly river
  flooding.

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.
