Continued Heavy Rain for Portions of Texas and Louisiana; Critical Fire Weather Threats in the Great Basin

Slow moving tropical depression Imelda will produce heavy rain and flooding across southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana through late this week. Isolated areas may receive as much as 25 inches of rain, and flash flood watches are in effect, including for the Houston metro area. Active storms in the West will keep fire weather threats elevated to critical in the Great Basin. Read More >

About SKYWARN Spotter Training: The National Weather Service relies on trained volunteers to supplement Doppler Radar information when severe storms and tornadoes threaten. These dedicated individuals volunteer their time to learn about and detect severe weather. Their valuable cooperation is important in the warning process. Weather reports from trained spotters are used along with Doppler Radar data to issue warnings of tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and flash floods.

How can you get involved in this great program? Just attend one of our FREE spotter training talks at a community near you. The schedule for the spring of 2019 is below.
