Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms in the Deep South and portions of the east coast

A slow moving frontal boundary will continue to bring areas of heavy rain and thunderstorms in the Deep South and East coast early this week. A low pressure system over the Upper Midwest will keep conditions wet and cool early this week. High pressure over the west will move inland slightly allowing cooling along the coast, and intensifying the heat, especially in the interior Pacific NW. Read More >

Additional scattered showers and storms are expected mostly across Central TX today. While severe weather is not expected, a few storms could be strong with gusty winds and small hail. Due to the recent heavy rain in Central TX, additional rainfall may result in localized flooding.
Low chances for showers and thunderstorms will continue throughout the week with the highest chances on Thursday. A few strong strong storms are possible throughout this time, but widespread severe weather is not expected. Otherwise, temperatures will be near seasonal normals with highs in the 80s and lows in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms occurred over Central Texas on Sunday, May 28th. Along with severe storms, locally heavy rainfall and flooding occurred across a few counties and areas. Here is the Central Texas storm total estimates (graphic) with a few of the higher rain gauge readings across the region. Far western Falls County had a report over 3 inches!
A stalled surface front currently over Central Texas will surge quickly north as a warm front Tuesday, before an upper low slides east over New Mexico. This will put North and Central Texas in a very moist warm sector with rich moisture surging northward from the Gulf Of Mexico. Occasional spokes of energy will rotate out of the upper low and bring more widespread showers and thunderstorms, with the possibility of heavier rainfall across the northwest half of the area.
An upper level disturbance will lift over the plains and work upon rich moisture moving north from the Gulf Of Mexico to produce off and on bouts of showers and thunderstorms, some containing locally heavy rainfall. Heaviest rainfall will be across the northwest half of the area.
Areas south of a Goldthwaite-Waco-Athens line saw localized heavy rainfall between 1 and 3 inches on Sunday, with more scattered to numerous showers and storms containing locally heavy rainfall expected on Memorial Day. Here are some flood safety tips, especially if plan on being outdoors or camping by area rivers and lakes.
