Texas, Hale

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 6:38 AM CDT on September 19, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on September 20, 2014


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Texas and the Panhandle of Texas...
including the following areas... in northwest Texas... Bailey...
Cochran... Cottle... Crosby... Dickens... Floyd... Garza... Hale...
Hockley... Kent... King... Lamb... Lubbock... Lynn... Motley...
Stonewall... Terry and Yoakum. In the Panhandle of Texas...
Briscoe... Castro... Childress... Hall... Parmer and Swisher.

* Through Saturday evening

* the remnants of tropical cyclone Odile... currently across
southeastern New Mexico and southwest Texas... are expected to
slowly move toward West Texas today and into the weekend. The
airmass across the Texas South Plains region just in advance
of Odile remains saturated. This will bring the potential for
widespread heavy rainfall in the range of 1 to 3 inches...
while locally higher accumulations are likely as well. With
the ground having been soaked by several recent rounds of
rainfall... runoff potential will be high... thus leading to
areal flooding or local flash flooding.

* Areal flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas...
including low lying roadways in urban areas... near Playa
Lakes..and along creeks and draws. Pockets of flash flooding
will be possible in areas prone to rapid runoff such as the
edge of The Caprock Escarpment.

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.
