Abstract

This paper explores the meteorological causes and predictability of the South-Central Texas Flood. A composite analysis identifies the large-scale weather patterns associated with extreme rain in Texas. The 2002 event is compared to these composite patterns, to see if the weather patterns during that time were recognizable as being associated with the potential for extreme rainfall. The detailed evolution of the weather patterns associated with this specific event is then analysed. A set of numerical simulations is then described to investigate the ability of numerical models to reliably predict the amount and location of heavy rainfall during this event
