Flash flood watch continues May 12
A flash flood watch continues until 7 p.m. For the following counties:
Atascosa, Bandera, Bastrop, Bexar, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, De Witt, Dimmit, Edwards, Fayette, Frio, Gillespie, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, Kinney, Lavaca, Lee, Llano, Maverick, Medina, Real, Travis, Uvalde, Val Verde, Williamson, Wilson, and Zavala.
Rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches, with isolated amounts of 6 inches, are possible. Areas with saturated soils can expect the highest risk for flash flooding, as rapid runoff will post an elevated threat to life and property. Expect low-water crossings and secondary roads to also be at a higher risk of flash flooding.
A flash flood WATCH means flash flooding is possible in or near the watch area. If you are in the watch area, plan now for what you will do if flash flooding develops. Stay informed and be ready to act if you see flooding or if a flash flood WARNING is issued.
If you see water across the road, remember: Turn around, don’t drown.
