The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of south central Texas,
  including the following areas, Atascosa, Bexar, Caldwell,
  Comal, De Witt, Fayette, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Karnes, Lavaca,
  and Wilson.

* From Friday afternoon through Sunday morning

* Copious amounts of rain are expected beginning Friday Afternoon
  and lasting through at least Sunday morning as Tropical Storm
  Harvey moves onshore. This watch may need to be expanded in time
  and area over the next several days as Harvey lingers around the
  area through the weekend. Rainfall totals in the watch area
  through early next week will average 8 to 15 inches with
  isolated amounts up to 20 inches. Significant flash flooding is
  possible as Harvey slowly moves or even stalls. Slight
  deviations in the track of Harvey could lower these expected
  rainfall amounts.

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.
