Residents today are thankful for the significant rainfall that blanketed much of South Central Texas during the late-night and early morning hours.

Jim Helmke of Floresville is a weather spotter through the National Weather Service’s SKYWARN program. He said that at his home, located one-half mile south of the downtown area, he measured 1.66 inches of rain as of this morning. This, he said, was the last measurable rainfall since May 13, when he measured 0.97 inches of rain. How much rain did you get? Click here.

Meteorologist Monte Oaks of the Austin-San Antonio National Weather Service Forecast Office in New Braunfels said the storm provided a brief respite from this month’s ongoing triple-digit temperatures. Except for a few isolated showers or thunderstorms through Thursday evening, he said hot, dry weather will be returning to the area for at least another week. Then, some models suggest an increase in tropical moisture from a storm currently located in the Windward Islands.

Lightning strikes caused sporadic power outages for the area’s electricity providers. While outages for the Guadalupe Valley Electrical Cooperative and the Karnes Electrical Cooperative were negligible, the Floresville Electric Light & Power System (FELPS) reported approximately 200 outages. FELPS General Manager David McMillan said these outages, which lasted less than 30 minutes, were primarily in Poth and along F.M. 539 east of Floresville.
