A large flash flood warning has been issued for LLano, Comal, Hays, Burnet, Travis, Kendall, Blanco, Williamson, and Gillespie counties in South-Central Texas until 4:15 AM. This warning has been issued in advance of the thunderstorms currently entering the region from the west. Creeks and local streams still contain water and the ground is saturated. Any additional rainfall will likely result in more flash flooding. The good news is the line of storms is currently moving east at a good clip so while rain may fall in a hurry – we should see it end in the same fashion.
