This is Already the Fifth Wettest September Ever in San Antonio

posted by Jim Forsyth - 

The flash flood watches and warnings have expired and the roads are actually dry for the day's commuting, but San Antonio is on path to set a record this month for the wettest September ever, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The National Weather Service says this is already the fifth wettest September in the city's history, with 10.48 inches of rain officially at the airport.  Some areas, especially in northwest Bexar County, have gotten 13 inches in the past week.

The fact that we haven't had any significant rain since yesterday afternoon has helped reduce the number of streets and intersections in the city barricaded due to flooding to 17.

But more rain is expected starting this afternoon, and into tonight and tomorrow. 

And a potential tropical system building in the Gulf of Mexico could lead to more significant rain on already saturated soils this coming weekend, leading to the potential of serious flooding.
