Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 5:48 AM CDT on April 30, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 01, 2016


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Louisiana and East Texas... including the following
areas... in Louisiana... Bienville... Caldwell... De Soto...
Grant... Jackson... La Salle... Lincoln... Natchitoches...
Ouachita... Red River... Sabine... Union and Winn. In East
Texas... Angelina... Nacogdoches... Sabine... San Augustine and
Shelby.

* Through Sunday morning

* thunderstorms containing heavy rainfall are expected to continue
to spread across the four state region today into tonight.
Additional rainfall amounts of one to three inches... with
isolated higher amounts... will be possible... mainly across
north central and northeast Louisiana... into the lower Toledo
Bend and Sam Rayburn country of deep East Texas. Given that
grounds have become saturated from ongoing rainfall... this
additional heavy rainfall has the potential to enhance runoff
and result in flash flooding.

* In addition to the flash flooding threat... this heavy rainfall
will cause significant rises on area rivers and lakes.

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.
