The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of Deep South Texas, including the following areas,
Brooks, Coastal Cameron, Coastal Kenedy, Coastal Willacy,
Inland Cameron, Inland Kenedy, Inland Willacy, Jim Hogg,
Northern Hidalgo, Southern Hidalgo, Starr, and Zapata.

* Through late tonight

* Areas of moderate to heavy rainfall producing showers and
thunderstorms will continue across the region throughout this
evening and possibly into tonight. Any additional rainfall that
falls over already saturated or flooded locations will quickly
worsen any flooding situations.

* Heavy rainfall in a short period of time will cause small
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
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
