* THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING

* A TROPICAL AIR MASS COMBINED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE
  WILL CAUSE WIDE SPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. SOME AREAS
  HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL THE LAST COUPLE
  OF DAYS WHICH HAS SATURATED GROUNDS. SOME STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE
  OF RAINRATES OF 2 INCHES AN HOUR WHICH COULD OVERWHELM DRAINAGE
  BASINS CAUSING FLOODING. STORMS WILL ALSO BE MOVING SLOWLY AND
  COULD MOVE OVER AREAS THAT RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL FURTHER
  ADDING TO THE FLOOD THREAT. AREA BAYOUS MAY QUICKLY RESPOND
  WITH RAPID RISES. OVERALL THE AREA COULD SEE ANOTHER 1 TO 3
  INCHES OF RAIN WITH ISOLATED 5 TO 6 INCH AMOUNTS.

* TIMING - HEAVY RAINFALL COULD BEGIN AS EARLY AS 5AM TO 7AM CDT
  THURSDAY BUT MOST LIKELY LATER IN THE MORNING BETWEEN 8AM AND

  AFTERNOON WITH MOST STORMS DISSIPATING WITH THE LOSS OF DAY TIME
  HEATING IN THE EVENING.

* MOST LIKELY AREA FOR HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE FROM COLLEGE STATION
  TO HOUSTON. AREAS NORTH OF THIS LINE ARE MORE LIKELY TO RECEIVE
  HEAVY RAINFALL BUT COASTAL AREAS CANNOT BE RULED OUT DUE TO THE
  LARGE AMOUNTS OF TROPICAL MOISTURE FOR STORMS TO DEVELOP.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON
CURRENT FORECASTS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO
CROSS SAFELY. VEHICLES CAUGHT IN RISING WATER SHOULD BE ABANDONED
QUICKLY. IF YOUR VEHICLE STALLS...ABANDON IT AND SEEK HIGHER
GROUND IMMEDIATELY. RAPIDLY RISING WATER MAY ENGULF YOUR VEHICLE
AND ITS OCCUPANTS AND SWEEP THEM AWAY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.

TURN AROUND...DON`T DROWN!
