Heavy Rains Forecast for the Region


…Multiple rounds of strong thunderstorms and heavy rainfall are expected late tonight through Wednesday…

Area of Concern:

All of South Central Texas

Threats & Impacts: 

Rainfall:  Widespread 1 to 3 inch amounts, with  isolated totals up to 5 inches possible north of I-10.  These rains will  likely saturate soils and produce localized flooding in normally flood  prone areas. 

Additional Strong Storm Threats: Isolated stronger storms may produce up to 1 inch sized hail and wind gusts up to 60 mph.  

Impacts: Several  locations may experience minor flooding with flood waters capable of  causing small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches to become swollen and  overflow in a few places, but with little to no property damage. Quick  ponding of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor  drainage areas. Storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and  begin to overflow in a few places. Flood waters may prompt brief road  closures.

Timing and Overview:

An unstable pattern will favor repeated rounds  of showers and thunderstorms, beginning as early as late this evening  and continuing into Wednesday afternoon. Threats for strong storms and  heavy rains should be mainly west of Highway 281 tonight before shifting  east to along and east of the I-35 Corridor from midday Tuesday through  Wednesday afternoon.  A cold front is expected during the day  Wednesday, but additional showers and thunderstorms are expected to  continue behind the front for several hours.
