Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:39 AM CDT on September 20, 2014

Expires 5:00 PM EDT on September 20, 2014

... Flash Flood Watch in effect until 4 PM CDT this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Brownsville has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of deep south Texas...
including the following areas... Hidalgo... inland Cameron...
Starr and Zapata.

* Until 4 PM CDT this afternoon

* very moist and unstable tropical air remains in place over much
of deep south Texas this morning. The continued presence of this
tropical moisture will maintain the threat of locally heavy
rainfall from slow moving strong showers and thunderstorms
throughout the day. Some areas within the watch area could see
rainfall totals today of 1 to 3 inches with isolated amounts
ranging from 3 to 4 inches. The combination of the recent heavy
rainfall across the middle and lower Rio Grande Valley and the
potential rainfall today may produce localized flash flooding in
the watch area. The urban areas in Hidalgo and inland Cameron
counties will be especially susceptible to localized flooding if
heavy rains impact these areas.

* Flash flooding could lead to water covering roadways and
intersections and making travel very dangerous. Low lying areas
could by inundated by flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Residents... particularly those in flood prone areas... as well as
those living near small streams and creeks... should be prepared to
move to higher ground if flooding occurs.
