Alert: Heavy rainfall expected today through Saturday morning across South Central Texas and the Hill Country. A steady supply of tropical pacific moisture from the remnants of Manuel. Deepening gulf moisture and an approaching cold front will bring widespread showers and thunderstorms to south central Texas.
The greatest threat for flash flooding this morning into early this afternoon will be across the Edwards Plateau and Rio Grande plains. The threat for flash flooding will extend eastward across hill country and i-35 corridor late this afternoon into the early morning hours Saturday as a cold front approaches the region. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected with isolated 6-inch amounts possible.

Flooding of low water crossings and other low-lying and normally flood prone areas is likely after heavy rains. Rivers may also be prone to rapid rises.
