A flash flood watch is in effect from Friday morning through the morning of Sunday, Oct. 25, for 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 counties.

Locally heavy rain beginning tonight will lead to flash flooding across South Central Texas Friday and Saturday as a combination of deep low-level moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, mid-level moisture from the Pacific, an upper-level trough, and a surface cold front will bring heavy rainfall to South Central Texas.

Some areas of locally heavy rain are possible tonight and could lead to flash flooding by Friday morning. Rainfall totals are expected to be 4 to 8 inches, with isolated amounts of 10 to 12 inches possible.

Flash flooding of roads, low-lying areas, creeks, and streams is possible; there is also a threat for some minor to moderate river flooding.

Stay informed and be ready to act if you see flooding or if a flash flood warning is issued.
