on

Spring, Texas – August 24th, 2017: A flash flood watch is in effect from 4:00 AM Friday through Monday morning (this could likely get extended).

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has expanded the Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of southeast Texas…including the following counties

Austin…Brazoria…Brazos…Burleson…Chambers…Fort Bend…Galveston… Grimes…Harris…Liberty…Montgomery…Waller and Washington.

Rainfall from Harvey will cause devastating and life-threatening flooding as a prolonged heavy rain and flash flood threat is expected to occur. Rainfall rates of 4 inches per hour or more will lead to flash flooding as rain squalls from Harvey begin to become more numerous Friday morning along the coast and then spread inland Friday night and Saturday. Periods of heavy rainfall are then expected from Harvey or its remnants through Monday morning.

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.
