FRIO-ATASCOSA-WILSON-KARNES-GONZALES-DE WITT-LAVACA-DIMMIT-
1248 AM CDT TUE MAY 26 2015

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...REST OF TONIGHT.

WITH THE MAIN SYSTEM THAT PRODUCED THE TORRENTIAL FLOODING AND
SEVERE WEATHER TODAY OUT OF THE AREA FINALLY...THE FOCUS OF THE
REST OF THE NIGHT IS ON REMNANT ACTIVITY FARTHER WEST IN THE HILL
COUNTRY AND ALONG THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY.

THERE STILL EXISTS A CHANCE FOR ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN DEVELOPMENT
DUE TO YET ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE APPROACHING FROM THE
BIG BEND AREA. LOCATIONS ON THE EDWARDS PLATEAU...ALONG THE RIO
GRANDE VALLEY...AND MAINLY SOUTH OF THE I-10 CORRIDOR ARE WHERE
THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL TOTALS OF
1-2 INCHES WITH ISOLATED AMOUNTS UP TO 4 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE
IF THESE STORMS DEVELOP OVERNIGHT.

ALSO...AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS WILL CONTINUE TO FLUCTUATE AS THEY
HANDLE DRAINAGE AND FLOWS FROM TODAYS FLOODING. SO IT WILL
CONTINUE TO BE VERY IMPORTANT TO HEED RIVER FLOOD PRODUCTS THAT
ARE ISSUED THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

RIVER FLOODING WILL LIKELY CONTINUE ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTH CENTRAL
TEXAS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...CAUSING A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON
TRAVEL. ALTHOUGH WE EXPECT A BRIEF LULL IN HEAVY RAINFALL FOR
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM MAY BRING
HEAVY RAINFALL TO SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS LATE THURSDAY AND LINGER
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. IT WILL BE UNLIKELY THAT THE AREA WILL BE
ABLE TO IMPROVE SUBSTANTIALLY FROM THE RECENT RAINFALL SO MORE
FLASH FLOODING POTENTIAL WILL EXIST AGAIN LATE THIS WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL BE NEEDED THROUGH THIS EVENING.
