River Flooding along the Blanco and San Marcos Rivers/Flash Flood Watch

Sunday May 24th, 2015

REST OF MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Heavy rains have moved out of Central Texas.  Sunday was mainly mostly cloudy and mild. Highs ranged from the upper 70s to lower 80s.  Flood Warnings continue along the Blanco and San Marcos rivers.  Sunday night, only isolated showers/storms will be possible through early Monday morning.

Another storm system approaches overnight and another round of strong to severe storms is likely for Monday.  This time I am expecting the heaviest of rains around midday to the afternoon time frame.  Flash flooding is again a likely bet, which is very bad news for Central Texas.  Rainfalls totals of 1-2” on average with locally higher amounts of 3-5”+ are expected.  Remember, Turn Around. Don’t Drown.

THE WEEK AHEAD

The week ahead will have rain chances each of the 7 days, with rain chances increasing for the latter half of the week going into the weekend.  Heavy rain again is possible for the Thursday through Saturday period. 

HISTORIC FLOODING

The Blanco River rose to historic levels - more than 40 feet - in Wimberley and points downstream after between 9-10" of rain fell in Blanco, streamed into the Blanco River and pushed downstream.  Flooding continued down the Blanco River to San Marcos and down the Blanco and San Marcos River to Martindale and on towards Luling.

THE LAKES

Lake Travis rose to 47% and continue to rise Sunday.  Lake Travis jumped to 52% full with Lake Buchanan at 40% full.  Amazing recovery - highest at Lake Travis since Memorial Day 2012.

MEMORIAL DAY FLOODS OF 1981

If you need a reminder to Turn Around Don't Drown - just look back at history.  Central Texas is known as "Flash Flood Alley."  On May 24th, 1981, 13 people lost their lives.  Floodwaters rose out of Shoal Creek and caused significant damage to homes and business and caught a lot of people off guard.  Here's a photo gallery from the storm: https://www.flickr.com/photos/austintexasgov/sets/72157626196677382/

Texas Volleyball to Play for National Title

Updated: Thursday, December 13 2012, 10:14 PM CST
Junior All-America outside hitter Bailey Webster had 18 kills while junior libero Sarah Palmer registered a career-high 31 digs Thursday as the No. 3 seed Texas Longhorns rallied for the five-set win over the Michigan Wolverines (25-11, 21-25, 23-25, 25-12, 15-11) in the NCAA national semifinal. With the win, Texas advances to the 2012 national championship on Saturday to play the winner of tonight’s Penn State/Oregon semifinal.

Sha’Dare McNeal hit .524 on 13 kills with 12 digs and four blocks for Texas (28-4) while Khat Bell hit .450 on 11 kills and seven blocks. Junior setter Hannah Allison tallied 53 assists with 11 digs and career-tying six blocks. Haley Eckerman added 16 kills and eight digs. Freshman middle blocker Molly McCage had four kills and six blocks while freshman Kat Brooks had two key service aces in the fifth set.

Lexi Erwin led Michigan (27-12) with 26 kills while Claire McElheny added 15 kills while hitting .419. Lexi Dannemiller had 52 assists with 11 digs and three blocks while Jennifer Cross registered eight kills and five blocks.

Texas hit .469 in the first set, holding Michigan to .000 as the Longhorns quickly took control with a 14-5 run to begin the match. UT closed out the set with a 9-4 run to win the first set easily.

Cross helped the Wolverines break a 12-12 tie in the second set as three straight points put them ahead, 15-12. Texas got within one after a ball-handling error was called, 20-19. Erwin would figure in three kills in the latter part of the set to help Michigan even the match.

It was a similar start in set three with Michigan again pulling away after a 12-12 tie. Bell brought UT within one at 19-18, but two hitting errors by the Longhorns would help Michigan take the 2-1 lead in the match.

In set four, the Longhorns played in similar fashion to the first set. After three straight points by the Wolverines made it 11-9, Texas unleashed a 14-3 run, including seven straight points to force the final set.
 
Texas kept the pressure up with four straight points to open the fifth. Erwin brought the Wolverines back and McElheny would tie it at 8-8. After a Texas timeout, Webster used two kills to push the advantage back to three, 11-8. McCage used a solo block to make it 12-9 as McNeal would end the match for the Longhorns with the kill.
 
Saturday’s match begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Time (6 p.m. Central) and will be broadcast live on ESPN2. TexasSports.com will offer a free audio webcast, along with Gametracker live stats and live Twitter updates @TexasVolleyball.
