* At 6:30 AM the area of low pressure associated with the remnants of Bill were located very near Waco. This storm system continues to trek to the north/northwest. We should see a slowing of movement and the low will be sitting on the D/FW Metroplex around noon. By 10 PM it should be very near Gainesville – so essentially it’ll slam on the breaks this afternoon.

* Moderate to heavy rain continues in the D/FW Metroplex this morning. We should see the rain tamper down from widespread coverage down to scattered (50% or so) by early afternoon. Localized flooding will be possible.

* Isolated tornadoes will be possible along and east of the low pressure system – so along/east of Interstate 35/35W. Any tornadoes that develop will likely be weak, short-lived, but could spin up very quickly.

* While we’ve been lucky with flash flooding so far in the sense we haven’t had much – remember most of the water that’s falling will runoff into area lakes and rivers. Those remain full from the May rain so we’ll see an increase in their levels – possibly back up to major flood stage in some circumstances.

* Rain chances will continue into Thursday for portions of North Texas, Northeast Texas, and East Texas. Localized pockets of flooding will be possible from that activity along with a continued threat of isolated tornadoes.
