...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON CST TODAY...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* A PORTION OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING
  COUNTIES...BRAZORIA...CHAMBERS...GALVESTON...HARRIS AND
  LIBERTY.

* UNTIL NOON CST TODAY

* THE COMBINATION OF STEADY LIGHT RAINFALL TODAY AND EXCESSIVE
  AMOUNTS THAT FELL ACROSS PARTS OF THE AREA ON SATURDAY...
  GROUNDS ARE BECOMING SATURATED. AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE
  GULF WILL MOVE EAST AND HELP TO CONTINUE PERIODS OF LIGHT RAIN
  WITH OCCASIONAL HEAVIER SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH NOON
  ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS. ANY TRAINING HEAVIER CELLS THAT DEVELOP
  ACROSS THE WATCH AREA WILL QUICKLY RUNOFF AND PRODUCE FLASH
  FLOODING. RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA SHOULD BE LESS THAN 0.50 INCH
  WITH SOME AREAS RECEIVING 1 TO 2 INCHES. IN THIS SITUATION...IT
  IS IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THE SHORTER TERM RAINFALL RATES THAN
  THE TOTAL FORECAST PRECIPITATION. EVEN BRIEF HEAVY RATES CAN
  CAUSE IMPACTS.

* STREET FLOODING AND FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS MAY OCCUR DURING
  HEAVY DOWNPOURS BUT IMPACTS SHOULD BE RELATIVELY SHORT LIVED.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION
SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED.
