 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 3:38 am CDT on May 25, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of south central Texas... including the following
areas... Atascosa... Bandera... Bastrop... Bexar... blanco...
Burnet... Caldwell... Comal... De Witt... Dimmit... Fayette...
frio... Gillespie... Gonzales... Guadalupe... Hays... Karnes...
Kendall... Kerr... Lavaca... Lee... Llano... Medina... real...
Travis... Uvalde... Williamson... Wilson and Zavala.

* showers and thunderstorms capable of producing locally heavy
rainfall are expected to develop and move across south central
Texas late Monday morning through Monday evening. Rainfall
totals of 1 to 4 inches are expected... with isolated amounts
over 5 inches possible.

* Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in
the area... rapid flash flooding of low water crossings and
some roadways will be possible where heavy rains develop. Area
rivers and streams are also out of banks or in flood. Some of
these rivers and streams will reach their flood stages very
quickly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means flash flooding is possible in or near
the watch area. If you are in the watch area... plan now for what
you will do if flash flooding develops. Stay informed and be
ready to act if you see flooding or if a Flash Flood Warning is
issued.

Do not drive into flooded roadways. Some roadways... low water
crossings... and bridges may be inundated or overtopped. If you see
water flowing over a roadway... do not try to pass! Remember... turn
around... dont drown.

A NWS survey team concluded a tornado touched down on the west side of
Interstate 35 in Austin near brownie drive and diamondback trail. The
tornado peeled back a sheet metal roof to a business on the west side
of Interstate 35 and demolished a stone brick
sign. The tornado also caused damage to roofing shingles... snapped
large tree limbs and tossed a garbage dumpster at an apartment complex
near Hardin court. The tornado moved east-northeast... crossing
Interstate 35... where it caused significant damage to the second floor
of a storage facility. The metal roof and walls were collapsed in on
the southwest side of the storage facility. Ten small moving trailers
were lifted and tossed in various directions... with two tossed back
across to the west side of Interstate 35. Several power poles were blown
over along the access roads of Interstate 35. The tornado continued
east-northeast through the Windsor Hills subdivision... snapping numerous
large tree limbs throughout the subdivision. Peak winds were estimated
to be around 90-95 mph near the businesses along Interstate 35.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
340 am CDT Monday may 25 2015 


Short term (today through tuesday)... 
the atmosphere is getting ready for another round of showers and 
thunderstorms for this morning and afternoon...some of which could 
have heavy rain and be severe. Currently on water vapor imagery 
and per 00z upper air analysis a compact but strong shortwave 
trough can be seen beginning to move into West Texas. Looking at 
water vapor shows US that there are two areas where upper lift 
will be maximized with the first being over West Texas is closer 
proximity to the low. The second area of enhanced lift is farther 
south...just west of our western counties. Per latest radar 
imagery...we are already seeing convective development about 40 
miles west of del Rio. Morning high-res model guidance shows these 
two areas of lift quite well and keep an axis of the most activity 
following a west-southwest to east-northeast track from the respective origins. This 
would bring high coverages of showers and storms to north of our 
County Warning Area from the northern piece and a good swath of showers and storms 
across our County Warning Area later this morning and afternoon. The timing of 
this is a bit faster than previous thought with the main activity 
to the I-35 corridor around 18z. For the morning hours...think the 
activity will follow the expected motion quite well...but by the 
afternoon...convective outflow boundaries could lead to more 
chaotic development and storm motions...and coverage of activity 
is expected to increase across the eastern counties. With this 
expected scenario...the best coverage would be across the Edwards 
Plateau and Hill Country through the late morning hours...before 
encompassing much of the area this afternoon. 


Current GOES precipitable water analysis shows the atmosphere is slightly drier 
than the last rainfall event and this will help keep rain totals 
down. However...given the expected coverage of convection...1-4 
inches of rain will be possible with isolated higher amounts. 
These amounts will not occur for everyone...but the potential is 
there. It will not take a lot of rainfall to cause additional 
flooding so everyone needs to be weather aware today. Given the 
convection already ongoing west of the Rio Grande...went ahead and 
included the rest of the County Warning Area in the Flash Flood Watch and moved up 
the start time to 11z or 6am. 


The atmosphere will be extremely unstable today and with plenty 
of shear...severe storms are likely. The main threats will be 
large hail initially...but damaging winds can also be expected. 
The kdfx VAD wind profile and Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis indicate plenty of 
low-level shear with turning for isolated tornadoes as well. The 
threat for tornadoes will continue east through the afternoon 
hours. In addition to the flooding threat we will have a decent 
severe threat and Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the County Warning Area in an enhanced 
risk with the rest of the area in slight. With the activity 
currently just west of the Rio Grande...some sort of convective 
watch may be needed later this morning. Again...be weather aware 
on the Holiday with multiple ways to get weather information. 


Storms are expected to be east of the County Warning Area by the late evening and 
will keep small chances of rain in the forecast for the overnight 
period. There will be a small chance of diurnally driven 
convection Tuesday afternoon...but most of the forecast area 
should remain dry. 


&& 


Long term (tuesday night through sunday)... 
shortwave ridging is expected on Wednesday...keeping much of the 
area dry. Wednesday will be one of the warmest days so far this 
Spring with highs reaching the upper 80s and 90s for much of the 
area. By Thursday....the ridging is expected to break down and 
move east and we should cool a couple of degrees for highs. As the 
high shifts east...another upper trough is expected to be moving 
east across the western Continental U.S.. as this system nears the 
area...rain chances will be on the increase once again beginning 
Thursday. Models are keeping this low around the area through the 
weekend...so another wet period is possible although it is too 
early to tell how much rain will fall or exactly where.
