The Flash Flood Watch has been expanded and is now in effect for Brooks, Jim Hogg, Kenedy, Hidalgo, Cameron and Willacy Counties until 7 pm Wednesday evening. Areas of northern Brooks County have already received 5 to 7 inches of rainfall with isolated higher amounts since last night. Cameron and Willacy has received 2 to 4 inches this afternoon with reports of minor urban flooding. An additional 3 to 5 inches will be possible with locally higher amounts. Water 1 foot deep or greater will be possible on roadways, with flooding of low- lying and poorly-draining areas, and overflowing creeks or arroyos and possibly flooding frontage roads, highways and neighborhood streets. Remember: when roadways are flooded...turn around, don't drown!
Rain chances remain high tonight. Mid level low pressure centered over South Texas will continue to interact with deep tropical moisture keeping the chance of rain likely overnight. Heavy rain is likely at any time and any location throughout Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley with a Flash Flood Watch in effect for much of the region tonight and Wednesday. Lows tonight will be subject to the rainfall and could drop a few degree below what is forecast.
Here are the potential additional rainfall amounts through Thursday night with periods of heavy rainfall and localized flooding.
Rain and thunderstorms will continue into Thursday before conditions begin to dry out into Friday and the upcoming weekend. Rainfall may be heavy at times with isolated pockets of minor flooding across low-lying and poor drainage areas. With the return of more sunshine and rain free conditions, expect for temperatures to bounce back into the mid to upper 90s across the valley and to near 100 degrees out west this weekend.
