100 PM EDT SUN AUG 23 1998

AT 12 NOON CDT..THE CENTER OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION "CHARLEY" WAS
LOCATED IN SOUTH TEXAS, JUST TO THE SOUTHEAST OF DEL RIO.  THE
MOVEMENT OF CHARLEY HAS SLOWED AND THE DEPRESSION IS NOW ALMOST
STATIONARY.   THE STEERING WINDS IN THE ATMOSPHERE ARE VERY WEAK SO
ANY MOVEMENT OF "CHARLEY" SHOULD BE SLOW DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 48
HOURS.  THE GREATEST THREAT WITH THE REMAINS OF CHARLEY WILL
CONTINUE TO BE THE VERY HEAVY RAINS AND POSSIBLE FLASH FLOODING.  
NEXRAD RADAR ESTIMATES INDICATE THAT THE HILL COUNTRY OF TX
GENERALLY RECEIVED 3 TO 6 INCH RAINS DURING THE 24 HOURS ENDING AT 7
AM EDT.  HOWEVER, SCATTERED REPORTS OF 6 TO 8 INCHES WERE REPORTED
FROM BANDERA FALLS AND UTOPIA SOUTHEASTWARD TO HONDO WHERE OVER
8 INCHES OF RAIN FELL.    

A FEEDER BAND ASSOCIATED WITH "CHARLEY" IS CURRENTLY PRODUCING
HEAVY RAINS OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS.  HEAVY RAINFALL
WITH DECAYING TROPICAL SYSTEMS OFTEN EXHIBIT A TENDENCY TO PRODUCE
A CONCENTRATED AREA OF VERY HEAVY RAINFALL NEAR THE CENTER OF THE
STORM AT NIGHT.  FLASH FLOOD WATCHES CONTINUE OVER ALL OF SOUTH
CENTRAL TEXAS AND THE HILL COUNTRY WEST OF SAN ANTONIO.  WATCHES
ALSO EXTEND TO THE NORTHERN EDWARDS PLATEAU AND THE LOWER TRANS-
PECOS.   THERE HAVE ALSO BEEN NUMEROUS FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS ISSUED
ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS AND THE HILL COUNTRY THIS MORNING. 
MORE WARNINGS WILL PROBABLY BE ISSUED LATER TODAY.  THEREFORE, 
PEOPLE IN AFFECTED AREAS ARE ENCOURAGED TO STAY TUNED TO LOCAL
