Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 11:51 PM CDT Sep. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7 am CDT Sunday...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Texas and the Panhandle of Texas,
including the following areas, in northwest Texas, Bailey,
Cochran, Hockley, Lamb, Terry, and Yoakum. In the Panhandle of
Texas, Castro and Parmer.

* Until 7 am CDT Sunday

* widespread moderate to heavy rain along with embedded
thunderstorms will continue to spread slowly eastward across the
western South Plains and southwest Texas Panhandle through early
Sunday morning. Rain amounts of one to two inches will be common,
with localized areas approaching 3 inches.

* Excessive runoff could lead to areal flooding or ponding. More
intense rainfall rates in thunderstorms could cause pockets of
flash flooding. Runoff over developed or urbanized areas will
be magnified further.

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.




Special Statement
Issued: 2:25 PM CDT Sep. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Chances for heavy rain and the risk for flooding will increase
across northwest Texas tonight, Sunday and into early next week...

A large upper level storm will gradually approach the region from
the west over the next few days. As it does so it will draw
considerable amounts of moisture into the Southern Plains, setting
the stage for periods of moderate to heavy rain and potential
flooding.

A risk for flooding and flash flooding will occur overnight across
the western South Plains and southwest Texas Panhandle - and a
Flash Flood Watch is in effect for this area. More widespread
showers and thunderstorms will then expand across the Texas
Panhandle, South Plains and rolling plains Sunday and persist into
Monday and perhaps Tuesday.

Over the course of the next few days rainfall totals of 1 to 3
inches are expected to be common, with localized amounts of 3 to
5 plus inches. Where the heaviest rain falls, which is currently
somewhat uncertain, areas of flooding and flash flooding may
develop.

Be prepared for potential flooding over the next few days and stay
abreast of the latest forecasts and be alert for possible flood-
related watches and warnings.
