North Central Texas Update:
So far, our radar up here in north central Texas has been rather benign with just a squall line of non-severe thunderstorms slowly making their way east and into the western fringes of the DFW metroplex at this time. This line is moving slowly and localized flash flooding may become a concern later this evening, so if you’re out and about, just be aware. Greatest threats expected with this line, which stretches all the way down to just northeast of San Angelo, will be gusty winds, lightning and heavy rain. The tornado threat is non-zero…but is very very low.
Western Hill Country/Edwards Plateau/Southwest TX Update:
Further south, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been placed until 2am. It’s expected that widely scattered strong to severe storms will continue to roam this region for the next several hours. So far, only a few large cells showing up on radar, but they are packing a punch with large hail and damaging winds as they move off to the northeast.
Central/Southeast Texas Update:
Rainfall rates have diminished greatly since earlier this afternoon. Flash Flood Warnings continue across the Hill Country region from Temple, to Austin and over towards Bastrop. The remainder of the region is still under Flash Flood Watches…including southeast Texas which will take effect at 10am this evening and run through Saturday afternoon.
Rainfall over the past 12 hours…easy to see who got the most today with rain of historic amounts impacting parts of the central Hill Country region.
