Rain and Ongoing Flood Concerns in Texas

While the weather pattern remains locked in place and most of the country is tranquil, pockets of heavy rainfall continue to impact the state of Texas, especially in the Hill Country.

Expect light rain to continue through the afternoon. The main area of showers will stay to our west, but occasional moderate rain will be possible. Minor flooding issues will continue. The good news is that we will have a break from the rain during the overnight hours.
Mostly cloudy and cool weather is in store across the region again today with light to occasionally moderate rain expected. The best rain chances will be across the western counties, which is also where the coolest conditions will be. Afternoon high temperatures will range from the upper 40s in the west to the upper 50s in the northeast. Winds will be out of the north around 10 MPH.
