Flash flood watch across South Texas May 30-31
A flash flood watch is in effect for South Central Texas for Saturday morning through Sunday morning, as a line of thunderstorms will approach the Hill Country and Central Texas early Saturday morning and weaken. The slow storms’ motions could result in locally heavy rainfall. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible, with isolated amounts of 3 inches.
The watch includes these 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.
Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in the area, rapid flash flooding of creeks, streams, low water crossings, and some roadways will be possible where heavy rain develops.
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.
