The National Weather Service -- Austin and San Antonio has issued a flash flood watch in effect Monday, Aug. 15, until 7 p.m. for a portion of South Central Texas including Atascosa, Bexar, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Karnes, and Wilson counties. Rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches, with isolated totals of 6 inches, are possible.
A mid- and upper-level disturbance will interact with deep moisture to produce numerous showers and storms across the Hill Country and I-35 corridor eastward. Locally heavy rainfall will occur with some of these storms and could result in flash flooding.
A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued. Remember: Never drive across a road covered in water. Turn around ... don’t drown.
