STORM SUMMARY NUMBER 9 FOR REMNANTS OF T.D. CHARLEY
NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION
HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER...NWS...CAMP SPRINGS MD
100 PM EDT MON AUG 24 1998

 THE REMAINS OF T.D. "CHARLEY" STILL POSES A MAJOR THREAT FOR MORE
HEAVY RAINS TONIGHT ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL TX AND THE BIG BEND AREA.  
HEAVY RAINS ARE ALSO EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS OF NORTHERN TX ALONG
THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY.  

SURFACE REPORTS ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL TEXAS NO LONGER SUPPORT A
DEFINED CENTER OF CIRCULATION.  THE ONLY SURFACE REFLECTION OF THE
SYSTEM IS A SURFACE TROUGH ACROSS WESTERN TX.  HOWEVER, SATELLITE
IMAGERY SUGGESTS THERE IS STILL A WELL DEFINED MID AND UPPER LEVEL
CIRCULATION WITH THE SYSTEM.   THIS CIRCULATION APPEARS TO BE
STATIONARY NEAR OR JUST WEST OF DEL RIO AND IS NOT EXPECTED TO MOVE
MUCH OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS OR SO.  

THE RAINS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM HAVE DIMINISHED OVER THE LAST
SEVERAL HOURS.  HOWEVER, MORE HEAVY RAINS ARE EXPECTED LATER THIS
AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT NEAR THE CENTER OF THE MID AND UPPER LEVEL
CIRCULATION WITH ANOTHER 5 INCHES OF RAIN POSSIBLE OVER A FEW
LOCATIONS.  A FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF SOUTH
CENTRAL TEXAS AND THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY.   

THE HEAVY RAINS LAST NIGHT AND EARLY THIS MORNING HAS PROMPTED
FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS FOR VAL VERDE, EDWARDS , KINNEY AND UVALDE
COUNTIES WHERE SERIOUS FLOODING PROBLEMS HAVE DEVELOPED..MANY
ROADS ARE IMPASSABLE.  RIVER FLOOD WARNING ARE IN EFFECT FOR RIO
GRANDE, DEVILS, WEST NUECES RIVERS AND HONDO CREEK TODAY.  

LATEST COMPUTER MODEL DATA SUGGEST THE REMAINS OF CHARLEY MAY
LINGER ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL TEXAS DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO
RESULTING IN THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE HEAVY RAINS AND FLASH FLOODING.  
RESIDENTS ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL 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 AM CDT TUESDAY.
