Issued: 3:35 PM CDT Jun. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Thursday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of south Texas, including the following areas,
Aransas islands, Bee, Calhoun islands, coastal Aransas,
coastal Calhoun, coastal Kleberg, coastal Nueces, coastal
Refugio, coastal San Patricio, Duval, Goliad, inland Calhoun,
inland Kleberg, inland Nueces, inland Refugio, inland San
Patricio, Jim Wells, Kleberg islands, Live Oak, Nueces
islands, and Victoria.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* persistent heavy rainfall due to tropical moisture has lead to
flash flooding over the watch area. On top of the 5 to over 10
inches of rainfall some areas will have received over the last
several days, rainfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour or
higher will likely cause water to rapidly accumulate over some
areas.

* Additional amounts of 1 to 3 inches can be expected across the
coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads area tonight through
Thursday afternoon. As with nearly all flash flood events,
locally higher amounts can be expected.


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.

321 PM CDT Wed Jun 20 2018

... Coastal flood advisory now in effect until 1 PM CDT Thursday...

* timing... through Thursday morning for the coastal flooding.

* Impacts... driving conditions may be impacted. Items along the
beach may need to be removed due to the incoming wave runup
along with standing water from heavy rainfall. Strong rip
currents are expected along Gulf-facing beaches. These rip
currents can be life-threatening to anyone entering the surf,
especially near piers and jetties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help. Do not venture far away from
main roads if on the beach, as some access roads could flood
resulting in beach going being stranded at times.
