Very heavy rainfall impacting parts of Harris County this morning…Flash Flood Warning has been issued until noon for the central portions of Harris County

In the last 2-3 hours 2-5 inches of rainfall has occurred over the west side of Downtown Houston including 4.80 inches at Transtar. Significant street flooding is in progress and rapid rises are occurring on lower White Oak, lower Buffalo Bayous and their lower end tributaries.

Additional heavy rainfall over NC Harris County will move SSW and over these areas already hard hit. An additional 2-3 inches of rainfall will be possible through noon today.

Significant street flooding is likely and rises an area creeks and bayous will continue.

..FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM CDT THIS AFTERNOON...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of southeast Texas...including
the following counties...Chambers...Coastal Brazoria...Coastal
Galveston...Coastal Harris...Fort Bend...Galveston Island and
Bolivar Peninsula...Inland Brazoria...Inland Galveston...
Inland Harris and Southern Liberty.

* Until 4 PM CDT this afternoon

* Rainfall forming and circulating around a mid level low centered
over the Galveston Bay area will be ongoing over the next few
hours. Various locations around western Houston have already
picked up a quick 3 to 4 inches of rain over just an hour or
two. Any more rainfall will likely induce street flooding and
low lying area flooding.

* Another 1 to 3 inches of rain is likely over the watch area
through the early afternoon hours. The main threat will be that
of street flooding, especially around construction areas. Local
bayous should be able to handle this rainfall although a quick 2
to 3 inch per hour rainfall rate over any watershed will make
levels quickly rise to near bankfull. Lower lying areas will
also experience flooding.

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.
