Next Round Of Rain On The Way….May 14th, 2013 at 12:55 pm by markmonstrola under Weather
An upper level low pressure system over northern Mexico will move into west Texas tonight, then into the southern Great Plains on Wednesday. As this upper low approaches, an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms is expected overnight across south central Texas. A few strong storms are possible, mainly along and south of the U.S. Highway 90 corridor. The main concerns are damaging winds and hail.
Even though many areas received impressive rain totals on Friday evening, we desperately need more. Hopefully, considering Friday’s rain soaked the ground pretty well, tonight/tomorrow’s rain will filter down into the lakes. Lake Travis is currently 43′ below normal levels and Lake Buchanan is 23′ below. Here are forecasted rain totals through Wednesday evening from one of our computer models we use in the First Warning Weather Center.
