Good afternoon everyone,
This will be a short update. As we discussed yesterday, we expected an uptick in thunderstorm and flooding activity today through tonight, and this is being borne out. The upper low which has been producing this persistent rainfall has now moved near the Big Bend, but will become nearly stationary over central Texas tonight and Friday. This system will resume its eastward movement by Friday night, exiting our region and bringing most of the rain to an end by Saturday night. There are no graphics attached with this update.
BOTTOM LINE: Heavy rainfall and flash flooding will be a major concern for North and Central Texas today through Friday morning. We're particularly concerned about the possibility of isolated intense rainfall tonight - mainly along and west of I-35/I-35E. This could lead to significant flash flooding. All of our emergency management, public safety and media partners need to stay ready for enhanced response activities this afternoon, and particularly overnight.
