A flash flood watch will soon go into effect for a majority of the southern South Plains and into the Big Country.

The watch includes Gaines, Dawson, Borden, and Scurry Counties. The flash flood watch is in effect from Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.

The National Weather Service says that rainfall amounts of two to four inches are possible across the area as an upper level low pressure system moves west and southwest across West Texas and New Mexico.

The NWS says that moderate to heavy rainfall may occur, and could persist in some areas for several hours or more.

Lubbock County is not part of the flash flood watch, but Lubbock is under a hazardous weather outlook as rain could cause flooding in some areas overnight.
