Flash Flood Watch Issued for Tyler County

Updated: Thursday, August 8 2013, 07:10 AM EDT

By Jeff Oechslein

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from 10 am this morning
through late Friday night for Tyler county. Rounds of
showers and thunderstorms are possible from today through
Friday night. Any of these storms can contain localized
heavy downpours of rain. Most areas can handle between
2 and 2.5 inches of rain without flooding, however if
repetitive or slow moving downpours favor a particular
basin, this could result in flash flooding.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that
lead to flooding along small streams. If you live near a
flood prone stream monitor water levels frequently during
the rounds of showers and storms in the coming days.
A slow moving cold front will finally sweep through the
area by Saturday bringing an end to the unsettled weather.
