STORM SUMMARY NUMBER 15 FOR REMNANTS OF T.D. CHARLEY
NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION
HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER...NWS...CAMP SPRINGS MD
100 PM EDT WED AUG 26 1998

ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO DEFINABLE SURFACE CENTER ASSOCIATED WITH
"CHARLEY" THIS MORNING, THERE IS SOME WEAK MIDDLE LEVEL SYSTEM
SITUATED JUST EAST OF THE TEXAS BIG BEND WHICH IS WHAT IS LEFT OF
"CHARLEY".  THIS WEAK MIDDLE LEVEL FEATURE HAS DRIFTED EVER SO
SLOWLY WESTWARD OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS, AND WILL DO THE SAME
DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO AS IT ALSO CONTINUES TO WEAKEN.

SOME THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY DID FLARE UP NEAR THIS MIDDLE LEVEL
CENTER ON TUESDAY NIGHT, BUT THE AREAL COVERAGE AND INTENSITY OF 
THE THUNDERSTORMS WERE LESS THAN WHAT OCCURRED ON MONDAY NIGHT
AND MUCH LESS THAN WHAT HAPPENED SUNDAY NIGHT, INDICATING THE
SYSTEM DOES CONTINUE TO WEAKEN.  SATELLITE ESTIMATES OF RAINFALL FOR
THE 24-HOUR PERIOD ENDING AT 7AM CDT WEDNESDAY MORNING DID SHOW
SOME ISOLATED 5" AMOUNTS OCCURRED BETWEEN DEL RIO AND SAN ANGELO,
BUT GENERALLY TOTALS WERE BETWEEN 2" AND 4" IN THIS REGION.  STILL,
THESE AMOUNTS OF RAIN ON TOP OF THE HEAVIER AMOUNTS THAT OCCURRED
PREVIOUSLY WERE ENOUGH TO KEEP MANY OF THE MAJOR RIVERS AND
STREAMS ALONG AND EAST OF THE RIO GRANDE IN FLOOD.  AT THIS TIME,
HOWEVER, THERE ARE NO FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS IN EFFECT.

THE SYSTEM STILL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE SOME HEAVY RAINS
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT, NEAR THE TEXAS BIG BEND. HOWEVER,
THE WEAKENING TREND SUGGESTS ANY ADDITIONAL HEAVY AMOUNTS WILL
BE ISOLATED, COVERING LESS AREA THAN PREVIOUS DAYS.  BECAUSE OF THIS
CONTINUED THREAT OF ADDITIONAL RAIN, A FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN
EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL AND
SOUTHWESTERN TEXAS.

THE NEXT STORM SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED AROUND 7 PM EDT WEDNESDAY.
