* THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING

* SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON AND
  TONIGHT OVER MUCH OF THE FOUR STATE REGION...AHEAD OF A STRONG
  UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE THAT WILL LIFT NORTHEAST ACROSS CENTRAL
  TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE
  POSSIBLE...WITH ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE TO THREE
  INCHES EXPECTED...WITH ISOLATED HIGHER AMOUNTS. WITH GROUNDS
  STILL SATURATED FROM EXCESSIVE RAINFALL THAT HAS FALLEN OVER
  THE LAST WEEK...THIS ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL RESULT IN
  INCREASED RUNOFF AND THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH FLOODING.

* LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...ESPECIALLY IN THE VICINITY
  OF RAPIDLY RISING CREEKS AND VERY HEAVY RAINFALL...WILL BE
  MOST PRONE TO FLASH 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.
DO NOT CROSS MOVING WATER ON ROADWAYS...BRIDGES...AND AT LOW
WATER CROSSINGS. ROAD SURFACES AND CULVERTS CAN BE WASHED OUT.

TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED ROADS. MOST
FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN VEHICLES ATTEMPTING TO CROSS IN HIGH WATER.
