 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 1:14 PM CDT on May 28, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 7 PM CDT this evening through
Friday morning...

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has expanded
the

* Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of south central
Texas... including the following areas... Bastrop... Bexar...
blanco... Burnet... Caldwell... Comal... Dimmit... Fayette... frio...
   Guadalupe... Hays... Kendall... Lee... Maverick... Medina...
Travis... Williamson and Zavala.

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Friday morning

* rainfall is expected to approach the Rio Grande from the west
this evening and progress eastward across The Hill Country and
potentially through the I-35 corridor during the overnight
hours. Between 1-2 inches of rain is forecast with isolated
amounts of 3 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 rain develops.

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.






 Special Statement  Statement as of 1:33 PM CDT on May 28, 2015


... Funnel clouds possible across portions of south central Texas
through this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has received
reports of funnel clouds observed along and east of the Interstate
35 corridor. These funnel clouds are typically brief and remain
aloft. On occasion... these funnel clouds may briefly reach the
ground and become a weak tornado.

If a funnel cloud is observed... do not panic but be prepared to take
shelter in a sturdy building as a precaution. These funnel clouds
will be short-lived but could be capable of producing minor damage
and flying debris if they reach the ground. These funnel clouds are
typically brief in nature and are extremely difficult to detect on
radar.

Conditions will remain favorable for the development of funnel
clouds through the early evening.



 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 4:29 PM CDT on May 28, 2015


... NWS damage survey for 05/23/15 tornado event in Hays County

.Dripping Springs tornado...

Rating: EF-0
estimated peak wind: 85 mph
path length /statute/: 5.8 miles
path width /maximum/: 100 yards
fatalities: none
injuries: none

Start date: may 23 2015
start time: 853 PM CDT
start location: 4.8 SSE Dripping Springs / Hays County / TX
start lat/lon: 30.1269 / -98.0909

end time: 900 PM CDT
end location: 2.6 E Dripping Springs / Hays County / TX
end_lat/lon: 30.1903 / -98.0295

Survey_summary: the NWS storm survey found a tornado initially touched
down near the intersection of ranch Road 12 and kc memory Lane. The
tornado traveled to the northeast and crossed FM-150 at Wood Springs.
The tornado then crossed E creek drive and lifted before crossing
Highway 290. The damage was primarily to trees... but about 15 homes
suffered minor damage.

Ef scale: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies
tornadoes into the following categories.

EF0... weak... ... 65 to 85 mph
EF1... weak... ... 86 to 110 mph
EF2... strong... .111 to 135 mph

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
307 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Short term (tonight through Friday night)... 


..locally heavy rainfall possible across much of area tonight and 
potentially Saturday and Saturday night... 
..severe storms possible across Hill Country and Rio Grande 
tonight... 


Scattered thunderstorms have developed this afternoon across the 
eastern half of the County Warning Area in an unstable airmass and rich moisture 
plume. A few strong storms have developed...including tropical 
funnels reported in the Austin/Round Rock area. Overall this 
activity should diminish towards sunset. 


However...main concern will be developing convective complex 
coming out of West Texas and storms coming out of Mexico. Storms 
have already developed across West Texas and are beginning to form 
in the higher terrain of Mexico...all in advance of approaching 
shortwave coming out of nm. Storms developing in the Burroughs of 
Mexico could cross into Val Verde County early this evening. 
MUCAPE exceeding 4000 j/kg and effective bulk shear of 35 kts will 
support storms capable of producing large hail and damaging 
straight line winds across Val Verde County. An isolated tornado 
can not be ruled. 


Several hi resolution models develop the West Texas convection 
into an mesoscale convective system this evening with propagation southeast into a 
strengthening 35 knots low level Theta-E advection axis up the Rio 
Grande plains. The potential mesoscale convective system should make it into the Rio 
Grande and northern Hill Country 02z-06z. Severe potential is 
possible in this area...for mainly straight-line winds. 


Farther eastward into the I-35 corridor...the convective complex 
will be encounter increasing cin and weaker low level jet. Much 
will depend on how strong of a cold pool develops behind the 
complex. The hrrr and nam12 do bring the complex through the I-35 
corridor...while Texas tech 4km WRF and global models weaken the 
system. There is enough uncertainty...and out of an abudance of 
caution given the saturated conditions across the area...to expand 
the Flash Flood Watch east through the I-35 corridor. 


Fridays forecast will depend highly on what happens tonight. A 
organized complex that makes it through the County Warning Area may stabilize 
conditions for much of the day. A weakening complex...leaving 
potential outflow boundary in an unstable environment...may 
result in higher probability of precipitation across the central and eastern County Warning Area Friday. 


&& 


Long term (saturday through thursday)...models are coming into 
better agreement with middle and upper level trough axis sliding 
across the Southern Plains Saturday and sharpening across 
East Texas/AR/la Sunday into Monday. This will send a cold front 
into the area late Saturday...and good chances for rainfall across 
the central and eastern County Warning Area Saturday and Saturday night. Higher 
precipitable waters  will remain pooled ahead of the front and slow movement of 
the front could potentially lead to some local pockets of heavier 
rainfall. GFS and European model (ecmwf) generally in agreement better chances of 
rainfall shift south and east with the front Sunday...but will 
have to watch this closely if the front ends up stalling with a 
weaker upper trough axis to the east. 


Looks like drier conditions do develop Monday through 
Wednesday...although not totally removing probability of precipitation across the 
southeast zones/coastal prairies where better moisture is pooled 
and closer to the lower heights with trough axis just to the 
east.
