streams and arroyos to fill quickly to bankfull, possibly
resulting in overflowing. Low-lying and poorly-draining areas as
well as urban locations could see widespread street flooding
with water depth of several feet. Locations that have seen the
heaviest rainfall could quickly see a return to life-
threatening flooding.

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

...Heavy Rainfall to Continue Impacting Much of Deep South Texas
Through Mid-Day Thursday...

.Deep tropical moisture over southern Texas interacting with a
broad level low pressure area in the middle layers of the
atmosphere has continued to generate widespread showers and
thunderstorms over much of Deep South Texas over the past two
days. Conditions continue to be ripe for additional thunderstorm
development tonight and Thursday morning with any of thunderstorm
able to produce heavy rainfall. An additional 2 to 4 inches is not
out of the question on top of 4 to 12 inches that have fallen
over much of the region. Remember...the ground can not not take up
much more water and any additional heavy rainfall that develops
through Thursday morning is likely to worsen and expand the
existing significant to life-threatening flooding problems around
the area.
