URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Flood Watch...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
357 AM CDT Thu Jun 21 2018

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON FOR
PORTIONS OF SOUTH TEXAS...

.Plentiful tropical moisture due to a mid level and surface
trough over the area has produced areas of moderate to heavy
rainfall. Persistent rainfall has resulted in significant
flooding across the region. Most of the region has already
received 5 to 10 inches with isolated higher amounts of rain over
the last couple of days, allowing our soils to become fully
saturated. Any additional rainfall this morning could quickly
lead to flash flooding over the watch area, as the water has
nowhere to go with rivers, creeks and ditches essentially full.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of South Texas, including the following areas,
Aransas Islands, Coastal Aransas, Coastal Kleberg, Coastal
Nueces, Coastal Refugio, Coastal San Patricio, Duval, Inland
Kleberg, Inland Nueces, Inland Refugio, Inland San Patricio, Jim
Wells, Kleberg Islands, and Nueces Islands.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* Persistent heavy rainfall due to tropical moisture has lead to
flash flooding over the watch area. Over the past several days,
5 to over 10 inches of rainfall fell in some areas. Additional
rainfall with rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour or higher will
likely cause water to rapidly accumulate over these areas.

* Additional amounts of 1 to 2 inches can be expected across the
Coastal Bend area through this afternoon. As with nearly all
flash flood events, locally higher amounts will be possible.


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.

Coastal Hazard Message...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
338 AM CDT Thu Jun 21 2018

...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ALONG GULF-FACING BEACHES...

...MINOR COASTAL FLOODING EXPECTED ALONG THE ISLANDS AND AREA
BAYS THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING...

.Although tidal overflow and lower astronomical tides are
expected, high period swells and swell heights will combine with
areas of fresh water on access beaches due to previous heavy
rainfall to result in minor coastal flooding at times over gulf-
facing beaches, especially during times of high tide. At times,
heavy rainfall over the beaches could result in flash flooding.
This coastal flooding will make driving difficult to impossible,
and in some areas could result in beach access roads being
inaccessible. Reports from local officials of flooding along the
bays and inter-coastal waterways has prompted us to include the
inland locations along the bays in the Coastal Flood Advisory.
However, the swells periods have decreased, and the high risk of
rip currents is no longer in effect, although there is a moderate
risk of rip currents through Thursday.

338 AM CDT Thu Jun 21 2018

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM CDT THIS
AFTERNOON...

* TIMING...Through Thursday morning for the coastal flooding.

* IMPACTS...Driving conditions may be impacted. Items along the
beach may need to be removed due to the incoming wave runup
along with standing water from heavy rainfall. Moderate rip
currents are expected along gulf-facing beaches. These rip
currents can be life-threatening to anyone entering the surf,
especially near piers and jetties.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help. Do not venture far away from
main roads if on the beach, as some access roads could flood
resulting in beach going being stranded at times.
