* The center of circulation associated with the remnants of Bill is located about 40 miles south of Waco. Movement is to the north/northwest around 13 MPH.

* So far we’ve been able to keep flooding issues at relative bay. As the storm system begins to slow down later this morning in North Texas that may change. Localized flooding will be possible. If we se a heavier band set up shop or start to see training the threat for flooding will rapidly increase.

* The heaviest rains being produced by the system are located over the northern semicircle with another feeder band east of the center. About 1 to locally 2 inches of rain per hour are being observed.

* Rain will continue across North Texas this morning.

* It looks like dry air has spared most of South-Central Texas and Southeast Texas from heavier rains. They ended up on the ‘clean’ side of the system. Usually we’ll see the west side of a storm much drier versus the east side of the storm. The east side of the storm is called the ‘dirty’ side.

* After sunrise and by late morning we’ll see showers and thunderstorms increase across East and Southeast Texas. Isolated tornadoes and locally heavy rain are possible. Some flood threat will also exist but should be more localized.
