The Rain Has Arrived! How Much Will We Get, and Who'll Get the Most?

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE:

The heavy rain is on  the doorstep of the area and will be moving north into the eastern half  of the area today. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Karnes, DeWitt,  and Lavaca County until Wednesday evening. 

Threats & Impacts: 

Rainfall Accumulation Through Thursday:  Less than 1 inch west  of Highway 83, 1-3 inches for the I-35 corridor, 2-4 inches east of the  I-35 corridor and 4-6 inches for the Coastal Plains. Isolated locations  could exceed 8 inches (mainly in the Coastal Plains).

Timing and Overview:

Rainfall will be on  the increase throughout the morning in the southern counties as  widespread rain moves north from the Corpus Christi area. Rainfall  accumulations have exceeded 4 inches there and this could be possible in  the southern Coastal Plains counties later this morning. Therefore, a  Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Karnes,  DeWitt, and Lavaca County. The watch will remain in effect through  Wednesday evening to account for additional rainfall on presumed  saturated soils tomorrow. Minor flooding will be possible from the  heavier cells outside of the areas within the watch. Rain chances will  decrease on Thursday. 

So far this morning, highways are wet, but there are no reports of street closures due to the rain, and there are no reports of any weather-caused power outages
