More Rain, Possible Flooding

 

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Flash flooding times 2.  That's what happened when 1-3" of rain dumped on parts of Central Texas Thursday evening on top of up to 7" overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning.  And we're not done yet.  We could see another round of rain early Friday morning and perhaps Friday evening.  All of this heavy rain is the result of tropical moisture - from remnants of Hurricane Odille and from the Gulf of Mexico.  A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect 'til 7 AM Friday.

Camp Mabry shattered a daily rain record with 3.47" through the morning and .16" on top of that through 10 PM Thursday.  ore rain in the evening.

What's ahead?  Tropical moisture hangs around into the weekend.  I'm keeping a 70% chance of more rain Friday (it does not look as heavy), and a 30% chance on Saturday, then backing off to a 20% chance late Sunday.

The cold front slated for Sunday night/Monday is still on target according to some computer models, but others are shying away from bringing it all the way through Central Texas.  Whether it does or doesn't get here - it's not that strong of a front anyway, so we'll likely have upper 80s to around 90 next week.

Don't forget!  The Autumnal Equinox is at 9:29 PM Monday.
