The low pressure system currently impacting California is set to take a southern track into Texas over the next couple of days, with impacts beginning as early as Monday night and lasting through Wednesday afternoon. Here is a statement from the National Weather Service:

“A strong upper level system is expected to move across South Central Texas between Tuesday and Wednesday in combination with rich tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico to produce widespread shower and thunderstorm activity. Some of these storms could become severe…with damaging winds and heavy rainfall. Storm rainfall amounts could range from one half to an inch west of highway 83 and one to two inches east of highway 83 and highway 281. Along and east of highway 281…rainfall amounts will vary from two to four inches of rainfall accumulations with possible pockets of six inches.”

.. just what we need to hopefully put a dent in this four-year drought.
