Before we take a break for this evening’s Halloween festivities, we wanted to provide everyone with some rainfall summary graphics from the past two days. Let’s start out by saying that nobody…not even the local forecasters…were anticipating the amount of rainfall we had in certain areas over the past two days…specifically the hill country region between Austin and San Marcos…and the greater Houston Metro area. Just goes to show you that mother nature is going to do whatever she wants to do, despite the best forecast models and human skillsets to go along with them. With exception to a chance of rain and a few thunderstorms tomorrow across north central and northeast Texas, we’ll have mostly quiet conditions for the next several days until our next system arrives early next Thursday.
Northern Texas – DFW Metro
Rankings for DFW and Waco as of 9am this morning:
Central Texas – Waco/Austin/San Antonio
Storm damage surveys are still in progress in the cities near Houston which were hit by tornadoes early this morning…Alvin, Friendswood, Pasadena, Baytown, Highlands, etc. Flooded roadways have limited access to some of the areas, so we have only preliminary survey results at this time. They can be found at the following link: https://nwschat.weather.gov/p.php?pid=201510311349-KHGX-NWUS54-LSRHGX
Storm damage surveys for Central Texas/Hill Country areas impacted yesterday…from Floresville up towards San Marcos will likely take place either tomorrow or on Monday once floodwaters have receded and roadways have cleared. We’ll post those damage survey updates once they become available!
