...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of southeast Texas...including the following
  counties...Austin...Brazoria Islands...Brazos...Burleson...
  Chambers...Coastal Brazoria...Coastal Galveston...Coastal
  Harris...Fort Bend...Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula...
  Grimes...Inland Brazoria...Inland Galveston...Inland Harris...
  Montgomery...Northern Liberty...Polk...San Jacinto...Southern
  Liberty...Trinity...Walker...Waller and Washington.

* Through Friday morning

* The remnants of Tropical Depression Imelda should continue to
  drift slowly north tonight as extremely warm and moist air flows
  into Southeast Texas. While the bulk of the heaviest rains have
  moved off to the south, scattered showers and thunderstorms will
  persist through the early evening hours. A brief break is
  possible later tonight but we could see showers redevelop
  overnight or early Friday morning. Given the very saturated
  grounds and watersheds, it would not take much rain to
  exacerbate these conditions once again. The flood threat may
  begin to shift further north late tomorrow as the remnants of
  Imelda move off to the northeast.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is
observed...act quickly. Move up to escape flood waters. Do not
stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
