Flash Flood Watch Remains in Effect

Flash Flood Watch Remains in Effect

Rain is moving back into the area Wednesday through Friday with the heaviest rain expected Wednesday night and early on Thursday.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Thursday at 7 p.m. CDT for all counties in the NewsWest 9 viewing area. 

We are forecasting 1-4" across the Permian Basin through Thursday morning. The heaviest rain is expected to fall along and north of Interstate 20. Localized total amounts of rainfall could reach 5"+ in Gaines, Andrews, Dawson and Borden Counties. 

Remember the general rule when encountering a flood prone area, "Turn Around, Don't Drown." Water depth can be difficult to judge especially at night. It only takes 6 inches of running water to knock an adult off of their feet!

NewsWest 9 will be monitoring the rain event throughout the week and will keep you up to date with all the latest.
