 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 4:49 am CDT on May 23, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from late tonight through Monday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of southwest Arkansas...
northwest Louisiana... southeast Oklahoma and Texas... including
the following areas... in southwest Arkansas... Columbia...
Hempstead... Howard... Lafayette... Little River... Miller...
Nevada and Sevier. In northwest Louisiana... Bienville...
Bossier... Caddo... Claiborne... De Soto... Natchitoches... Red
River... Sabine and Webster. In southeast Oklahoma... McCurtain.
In Texas... Angelina... Bowie... Camp... Cass... Cherokee...
Franklin... Gregg... Harrison... Marion... Morris... Nacogdoches...
Panola... Red River... Rusk... Sabine... San Augustine... Shelby...
Smith... Titus... Upshur and wood.

* From late tonight through Monday morning

* showers and thunderstorms will increase Sunday morning over East
Texas and southeast Oklahoma... and spread east northeast across
southwest Arkansas and north Louisiana Sunday afternoon and
night. Locally heavy rainfall is possible from the stronger
storms... falling over already saturated grounds from heavy
rainfall that has fallen in the last week. Rainfall amounts of
one to three inches... with isolated higher amounts... are
expected... with this heavy rainfall resulting in increased
runoff and the potential for flash flooding.

* Low lying and poor drainage areas... especially in the vicinity
of rapidly rising creeks... will be most prone to flash 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.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Shreveport la 
526 am CDT Sat may 23 2015 


Discussion... 
all remains quiet this morning...although low level moisture return 
will commence in earnest later this morning as the remnants of the 
stationary front still residing from central and southeast Texas along the la 
coast should quickly mix North/Wash out as south-southeast low level winds increase 
today. The morning water vapor imagery indicates flat upper ridging 
from East Texas across the lower MS valley this morning...but this feature 
remains prognosticated to shift east today as the closed low near The Four 
Corners region drifts NE into the central rockies/Western Plains later this 
afternoon. This will result in a deepening srly flow over much of the 
region today...enhancing the seabreeze as it works inland from the S 
la/southeast Texas coasts. Chance probability of precipitation should suffice this afternoon for much of 
the region...although scattered/numerous convection now ongoing from eastern 
nm/northwest Texas as well as S Texas should shift north-northeast into central Texas/OK by 
afternoon as large scale forcing spreads east into these areas ahead of 
the closed low. While brief heavy rainfall can/T be ruled out in the 
stronger storms this afternoon/evening...quantitative precipitation forecast amounts should not be 
excessive...with the greatest threat for flooding expected to remain west 
of the region. Temperatures this afternoon should climb another several 
degrees higher than what was observed Friday...back to near climatology 
values over much of the region. 


The short term forecasts are in good agreement with the primary trough 
axis beneath the closed low entering West Texas late tonight...resulting in 
large scale forcing slowly spreading east-northeast across central Texas into 
central/eastern OK. Should see an uptick in scattered convection tonight mainly northwest 
of the I-30 corridor of NE Texas/SW Arkansas...with the heavier quantitative precipitation forecast/S waiting 
until after 12z Sunday before spreading into the region. Given the 
deep warm layer and largely unidirectional flow enhancing cell 
training...flash flooding is a good bet later today and tonight just 
west of the region...before the heavy rain axis begins to shift east into southeast 
OK/East Texas after daybreak Sunday. Given the still saturated grounds in 
wake of widespread 4-8+ inches of rain that has fallen in the last 
couple of weeks...have hoisted a Flash Flood Watch for southeast OK/East Texas/much 
of SW Arkansas and northwest la from 09z Sunday through 12z Monday. The short term 
forecasts depict the West Texas shortwave as rather progressive as it shifts east-northeast 
across central/eastern Texas Sunday afternoon...but strongly diffluent flow 
aloft across a strongly unidirectionly sheared/unstable and moisture 
laden air mass will result in the potential for high rain 
rates...despite its steady east-northeast progression through the area. 
Widespread quantitative precipitation forecast amounts of 1-3 inches...with isolated higher 
amounts...are possible across the watch area...although the forecasts do 
taper quantitative precipitation forecast amounts off considerably farther east across scntrl Arkansas/north central 
la. 


The heavy rainfall threat should diminish Sunday night over north central la 
as this trough dampens out/exits the region to the NE. However...the 
reprieve in rainfall will be short-lived as additional scattered 
redevelopment occurs Monday as additional ripples in the SW flow aloft 
spread NE over the area ahead of the opening low over the northern/Central 
Plains. Unfortunately...the forecasts continue to depict another shortwave 
rounding the plains upper trough across Texas/OK Monday afternoon...again 
loading up with large scale forcing expected to overspread the region 
Monday night/Tuesday morning. Thus...another round of heavy 
rainfall/flash flooding is certainly possible during this time frame 
as the first round of heavy rainfall will only prime the already moist 
soil conditions. Modest heating within a very moist air mass should 
occur Monday afternoon before this next negative tilt shortwave 
traverses the area...with the threat for damaging winds possible in 
addition to the heavy rainfall. Given the already saturated 
grounds...it will not take much wind to down trees...even from the 
sub-severe storms. 


The severe/heavy rainfall threat should diminish from west to east Tuesday 
morning...although a west-southwest flow aloft looks to persist through the 
remainder of next week. However...the convection should become more 
widely scattered and diurnal each day. Temperatures should also return to 
near/above climatology through the remainder of the period as well.
