Hazardous Weather Outlook<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif"> Hazardous Weather Outlook National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 643 AM CDT Mon May 22 2017   TXZ200-213-214-226-227-235>238-231145- Brazoria-Chambers-Fort Bend-Galveston-Harris-Jackson-Liberty- Matagorda-Wharton- 643 AM CDT Mon May 22 2017   This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..   ...Flash Flood Watch is in effect...   .DAY ONE...Today and Tonight   Showers and thunderstorms are expected across the area today. On average 1 to 3 inch amounts are expected. While most of this rain will be beneficial, a surface boundary meandering about the region may focus some localized high rainfall accumulations...perhaps up to or above 5 inches which would cause flash flooding. There is considerable uncertainty as to where this boundary will end up, but indications are that it may be closer to the coast. Strong winds and small hail are possible in the stronger storms. Isolated tornadoes cannot completely be ruled out closer to the coast.   .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday   Another chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected Tuesday afternoon and evening ahead of a cold front. These should be fairly quick moving, so widespread flood concern will be low. Otherwise hazardous weather is not expected.   .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Spotters are encouraged to relay rainfall reports or any reports of severe weather or flooding.   $$ <span-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif">
