There will be a threat of locally heavy rain across parts of north and central Texas today. The greatest threat for flash flooding will be along and south of a line from Comanche to Waco to Centerville, where a Flash Flood Watch is in effect. The watch includes the Waco and Killeen areas, but does not include the DFW area.
The graphic attached to this email depicts the heavy rain threat areas today.
A very moist atmosphere will create an environment favorable for thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall. Any storm today across any part of north Texas could produce heavy rainfall, but we think the greatest threat of flash flooding will be across the southern areas where the storms will be most numerous. In the Flash Flood Watch area, rainfall rates of 2 inches or more per hour could cause flooding in urban areas and in small creeks and streams.
Conditions are not favorable for severe weather today or tonight. However, wind gusts up to 40 mph and frequent lightning will accompany thunderstorms.
