Lamb Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 03:55 AM CDT die 20o September, anno 2014

...Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of northwest Texas...including the following areas...Bailey...Cochran...Crosby...Dickens...Floyd...Garza...Hale... Hockley...Kent...Lamb...Lubbock...Lynn...Motley...Terry and Yoakum.

* Through this evening

* a very moist airmass will remain across the Texas South Plains region today as a weak upper level disturbance with tropical connections remains overhead. The combination will bring the potential for intermittent periods of heavy rainfall into this evening. Additional rain totals of 1 to 2 inches will be possible...with locally higher amounts. Runoff will be enhanced with wet grounds less able to hold additional rainfall causing a risk of areal flooding or localized flash flooding.

* Areal flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas... including low lying roadways...near Playa Lakes..and along creeks and draws. Pockets of flash flooding will be possible with the most intense rain in areas prone to rapid runoff such as the edge of The Caprock Escarpment.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood advisories and warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
