In   southeast Texas...Austin...Brazoria Islands...Brazos...   Burleson...Chambers...Coastal Brazoria...Coastal Galveston...   Coastal Harris...Coastal Matagorda...Colorado...Fort Bend...   Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula...Grimes...Houston...   Inland Brazoria...Inland Galveston...Inland Harris...Inland   Matagorda...Madison...Matagorda Islands...Montgomery...   Northern Liberty...Polk...San Jacinto...Southern Liberty...   Trinity...Walker...Waller...Washington and Wharton.   * From Friday afternoon through Saturday morning   * A cold front and potent upper level system are forecast to move   across the area and produce locally heavy rainfall Friday   afternoon into Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6   inches are expected over most of the area but isolated spots   could see as much as 8 to 10 inches. Rainfall should be coming   to an end early Saturday morning from the west and clear the   coast by Saturday afternoon.   * This episode of heavy rainfall could result in isolated flash   flooding along area roadways, underpasses and low lying areas as   well as small creeks and tributaries.   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...   Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is observed...act quickly. Move up to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.   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.   &&   $$
