Update Since Last Briefing:
Key Messaging Points:
Area of Concern:
Coastal Plains, San Antonio metro area, portions of the Hill Country, and Rio Grande Plains
Threats & Impacts:
Rainfall: Widespread 1-2" with locally higher amounts near 4" event totals in the Flash Flood Watch area.
A disturbance is located near Eagle Pass early this morning. Bands of showers and isolated thunderstorms associated with this disturbance will continue to bring heavy rain as they move into the region from the south and southeast today. It is still difficult to pinpoint with any certainty where these bands will set up, but the highest flash flood risk through this evening appears to be south of I-10 and west of I-37. Widespread 1-2" rainfall amounts with locally higher storm event totals near 4" will be possible in the Flash Flood Watch area. The latest computer models indicate the potential for rain bands to develop may persist through the day today, which is why the Flash Flood Watch was extended. It is important to keep in mind that not everyone in the watch area will see rain today, but those that do may experience isolated flash flooding from heavy rainfall. As the disturbance moves farther west today into northern Mexico, the heavy rain and flash flood threat will also shift west and exit the region by this evening. Should the flash flood threat end sooner than anticipated, the Flash Flood Watch may be cancelled early.
Next Briefing: This will be the last briefing for this event.
