STORM SUMMARY NUMBER 8 FOR REMNANTS OF T.D. CHARLEY
NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION
HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER...NWS...CAMP SPRINGS MD
100 AM EDT MON AUG 24 1998

      ..."CHARLEY NO LONGER A DEPRESSION..BUT THE HEAVY RAINFALL THREAT
CONTINUES"...

AT 12 MIDNIGHT CDT..SURFACE REPORTS ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL TEXAS NO
LONGER SUPPORT A DEFINED CENTER OF CIRCULATION AND THUS "CHARLEY" IS
NO LONGER CLASSIFIED AS A TROPICAL DEPRESSION.  DESPITE THE LACK OF A
DEFINED SURFACE CIRCULATION..UPPER LEVEL WINDS AND SATELLITE DATA
INDICATE A CIRCULATION STILL EXISTS ABOVE THE SURFACE TO THE
NORTHWEST OF DEL RIO.    THIS CIRCULATION APPEARS TO BE NEARLY
STATIONARY AND IS NOT EXPECTED TO MOVE MUCH OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS
OR SO.  

THE GREATEST THREAT WITH THE REMAINS OF CHARLEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE
THE VERY HEAVY RAINS AND POSSIBLE FLASH FLOODING.  A FLASH FLOOD
WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS AND THE
TEXAS HILL COUNTRY.  SATELLITE AND RADAR DATA HAVE SHOWN A RAPID
INCREASE IN VERY STRONG CONVECTION ACROSS VAL VERDE COUNTY DURING
THE PAST FEW HOURS WITH SATELLITE RAINFALL ESTIMATES OF 3 TO 4 INCHES
AN HOUR OCCURRING ACROSS THIS REGION.  THIS HAS PROMPTED A FLASH
FLOOD WARNING FOR VAL VERDE COUNTY WHERE SERIOUS FLOODING
PROBLEMS HAVE DEVELOPED..WITH MANY ROADS BECOMING IMPASSABLE.

THUS FAR FOUR KNOWN DEATHS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED DUE TO FLOODING IN
REAL COUNTY 30 MILES NW OF LEAKEY.  THIS REGION WAS HIT HARD WITH
HEAVY RAINS SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING WITH WIDESPREAD 6
TO 8 INCH AMOUNTS OCCURRING THROUGH REAL AND NORTHERN UVALDE
COUNTIES. 

LATEST COMPUTER MODEL DATA SUGGEST THE REMAINS OF CHARLEY MAY
LINGER ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL TEXAS DURING THE NEXT 2 DAYS RESULTING
IN THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE HEAVY RAINS AND FLASH FLOODING.   RESIDENTS
ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL TEXAS WESTWARD TOWARD THE BIG BEND REGION
ARE ENCOURAGED TO STAY TUNED TO LOCAL RADIO AND TELEVISION
STATIONS OR NOAA WEATHER RADIO FOR ADDITIONAL FLASH FLOOD
WARNINGS AND STATEMENTS.  

THE NEXT STORM SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED AROUND 1 PM CDT MONDAY.
