Locally Heavy Rain Possible
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Here we go again! Tropical moisture is building - Pacific moisture from Odile and Gulf moisture is still filtering as well. Those are combining forces to give Central Texas an atmosphere ripe for showers and storms. That's what has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Flash Flood Watch through 7 PM Thursday evening.
How much rain? It's still likely we'll get around 1" on average with some areas picking up as much as 5" through Friday. Pinpointing where the heaviest rain is tough - but computer models seem to be locking in on a solid 2" rain potential for Austin. If it comes too fast, flood advisories may be issued, so if you haven't already downloaded the KEYE Weather App, it's FREE and comes in handy! Also know we'll have updates on hashtag #keyewx to keep you in the know.
Looking ahead to next week - a cold front arrives Sunday night into Monday - and the Autumnal Equinox is at 9:29 PM Monday. We'll have temps at or below normal to start off fall, but this front isn't very strong, so don't pull out the jackets and coats just yet!
