The National Weather Service in Austin-San Antonio has issued an urban and small-stream flood advisory for southeastern Guadalupe County and De Witt, Gonzales, Lavaca, Karnes, and Wilson counties until 7 p.m.

At 3:59 p.m. CDT, Doppler Radar indicated an area of heavy rain due to thunderstorms moving east across the area. This will cause urban and small-stream flooding due to faster runoff with soils that already are saturated from heavy rains of the last couple of days.

Some locations that will experience flooding include:
Gonzales, Cuero, Floresville, Yoakum, Kenedy, Karnes City, Hallettsville, Yorktown, Shiner, Poth, Stockdale, Moulton, Kosciusko, Nixon, La Vernia, Runge, Falls City, Smiley, Nordheim, and Thomaston.

Rainfall of one to four inches is expected over the area. The rain will make minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas, highways, streets, and underpasses, as well as other
poor-drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
Across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, as well as farm and country roads. Do not
