County and northwest portions of Cameron County from the heavy
rain that thunderstorms produced across the warning area earlier

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of deep south Texas, including the following areas,
Brooks, coastal Cameron, coastal Kenedy, coastal Willacy,
inland Cameron, inland Kenedy, inland Willacy, Jim Hogg,
northern Hidalgo, southern Hidalgo, Starr, and Zapata.

* Through early Thursday afternoon

continue across the region through mid-day Thursday. This may
result in additional rainfall of 1 to 2 inches with isolated
higher amounts of 3 to 4 inches or more.

* Heavy rainfall in a short period of time will cause small
streams and arroyos to fill quickly to bankfull, possibly
resulting in overflowing. Low-lying and poorly-draining areas as
well as urban locations could see widespread street flooding
with water depth up to 3-4 feet. Locations that saw the heaviest
rainfall today could quickly see a return to life-threatening
flooding.

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.
