Re: Hurricane Lane - Now forecast to enter the Gulf of California -

Lane is Cat 3 as of 11 am update.

We're already bein put on notice that moisture from Lane could make the possibility of flash flooding worse here... a 'special weather statement'


Several weather features will come together across south central
Texas this weekend resulting in the threat for heavy rainfall and
flash flooding. A warm and very humid airmass has overspread south
central Texas and The Hill Country. This airmass will collide with a
cold front as it moves into the Texas Hill country late Sunday night
into early Monday. This frontal boundary will provide a focus for
shower and thunderstorm development. An additional factor will be
an influx of tropical Pacific moisture from what is now Hurricane
Lane located off of the West Coast of Mexico.

The combination of these features will result in heavy rainfall
and possible flash flooding across south central Texas and The
Hill Country. The greatest threat for flash flooding will be
Sunday night into Monday.
