Southeast Texas advised to watch the weather

Sunday, June 14 - A special weather statement from the National Weather Service Houston/Galveston

Increasing risk for heavy rainfall especially on Monday and Tuesday could lead to a dangerous flood threat for parts of southeast Texas.

Periods of showers and thunderstorms can be expected for the next several days as deep tropical moisture streams across the area. There continues to be a threat of locally heavy rainfall and flooding is a possibility where any type of training sets up. Additionally, a tropical disturbance near the Yucatan peninsula is expected to move into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico today and potentially organize into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it heads toward the northwest gulf through Tuesday.

Rounds of heavy rainfall will likely accompany this system resulting in a potentially dangerous flood threat for portions of the area.

Through Wednesday widespread rainfall totals could easily average 6 to 8 inches with some amounts exceeding 10 inches. This will obviously lead to a dangerous flood situation. Flash flood watches are likely going to be needed. Residents across southeast Texas are urged to closely monitor the weather over the next several days.
