Rain and Ongoing Flood Concerns in Texas

Pockets of moderate to heavy rain will persist in Texas and possibly extend into the weekend. Gulf of Mexico moisture continues to overrun a stationary front to produce waves of precipitation. The most vulnerable location is the saturated Hill Country in central Texas. A secondary area of heavy rainfall is also expected along the southern and central Texas Gulf Coast. Read More >

More rain will be moving into North and Central Texas overnight. The rain should remain light, but a storms across Central Texas may lead to moderate rainfall. Flooding threat will be increasing after sunrise Friday.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from Friday morning through Friday evening for much of North and Central Texas. An additional one to three inches of rain are forecast, with locally higher amounts in excess of four inches possible. Soils are very saturated from recent rainfall and will not be able to hold any more water. Rain that does fall is expected to result in flooding of creeks, streams, and rivers, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
Another upper level disturbance will bring widespread rain chances to the region. A few rumbles of thunder may occur south of Interstate 20, but no severe weather is expected. However, due to supersaturated soils in place, any localized, heavier rainfall will likely runoff and cause at least minor flooding. Otherwise, highs will remain between 55 and 60 degrees with light winds.
Moderate rainfall is expected across North and Central Texas Friday morning through Friday evening. Rainfall accumulations of one to three inches of rain is expected with locally higher amounts possible. The ground is already very saturated, so any additional rain will lead to continued flooding of streams, creeks, and rivers. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Friday morning through Friday evening for areas south of Interstate 20, and along and west of Interstate 45.
The rain chances will continue on Friday before tapering off on Saturday afternoon. The sun will definitely return on Sunday with high temperatures in the 60s. Let's enjoy it while we can!
