Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 5:05 PM CDT on April 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 01, 2016


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Louisiana and East Texas... including the following
areas... in Louisiana... Bienville... Caldwell... De Soto...
Grant... Jackson... La Salle... Lincoln... Natchitoches...
Ouachita... Red River... Sabine... Union and Winn. In East
Texas... Angelina... Nacogdoches... Sabine... San Augustine and
Shelby.

* Through Sunday morning

* thunderstorms containing heavy rainfall are expected to continue
expanding across the four state region later tonight. Additional
rainfall amounts of two to four inches... with isolated higher
amounts in excess of six inches... are expected across the watch
area through Sunday morning. Given that grounds remain saturated
from rains earlier in the month... this additional heavy rainfall
has the potential to enhance runoff and result in flash
flooding.

* In addition to the flash flooding threat... this heavy rainfall
will cause significant rises on area rivers and lakes.

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.
