STORM SUMMARY NUMBER 24 FOR T.D. "BRET"
NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION
HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER...NWS...CAMP SPRINGS MD
600 AM CDT TUE AUG 24 1999

AT 600 AM CDT THE CENTER OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION BRET WAS LOCATED IN
NORTHERN MEXICO WEST OF  EAGLE PASS AND IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 28N
100.6W.  BRET CONTINUES TO WEAKEN BUT STILL APPEARS TO HAVE A DISTINCT
CIRCULATION.  THE MAIN THREAT FROM BRET IS NOW FROM HEAVY RAINFALL
AND FLASH FLOODING. A FEEDER BAND ASSOCIATED WITH BRET CONTINUES TO
PRODUCE HEAVY RAINS ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTH TX...SOUTH CENTRAL TX
INCLUDING THE HILL COUNTRY.  AS THE REMAINS OF BRET MOVES WESTWARD
AND INTERACTS WITH THE SIERRA MADRE ORIENTAL MOUNTAINS IN NORTHERN
MEXICO VERY HEAVY RAINFALL IS LIKELY ALONG THE EAST SLOPES OF THE
MOUNTAINS.  A FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR MOST OF THE
SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS AND THE HILL COUNTRY TODAY.   

FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS AND/OR ADVISORIES ARE IN EFFECT FOR THE TEXAS
COUNTIES OF BEXAR, BROOKS, WEBB, BANDERA, REAL, KERR, ZAVALA, KINNEY,
VAL VERDE, DIMMIT AND MAVERICK COUNTIES.  SOME ROADS HAVE BEEN
REPORTED AS BEING FLOODED AND/OR CLOSED IN BROOKS COUNTY.  NEW
CONVECTIVE CELLS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND DUE TO THE HEAVY RAINFALL
DURING THE PAST TWO DAYS THE GROUND IS SATURATED ACROSS MUCH OF
SOUTH TEXAS.  PEOPLE ARE ENCOURAGED TO LISTEN FOR ADDITIONAL
WARNINGS THAT MAY BE ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICES IN
SOUTH AND SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS.    
 
THE SLOW MOVEMENT OF BRET HAS CAUSED IT TO BE A VERY HEAVY RAINFALL
PRODUCER.   DOPPLER RADAR ESTIMATES SUGGEST THAT 3 TO 6 INCHES OF
RAIN MAY HAVE FALLEN SOUTH AND WEST OF SAN ANTONIO DURING THE
NIGHT.  DOPPLER RADAR HAS ESTIMATED THAT MORE THAN 10 INCHES OF RAIN
MAY HAVE FALLEN IN KENEDY..HIDALGO..AND ARANSAS COUNTIES OVER THE
LAST 24 HOURS.  TWO DAY DOPPLER RAINFALL ESTIMATES SUGGEST THAT 25
INCHES OF RAIN MAY HAVE FALLEN DURING THE PAST TWO DAYS OVER
PORTIONS OF KENEDY COUNTY.     

THE NEXT STORM SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED AT NOON CDT.
