AUSTIN (KXAN) — A potent storm system is moving across Central Texas this evening, bringing heavy rainfall on top of already-saturated soil.
1-3 inches of rain has already fallen across a broad swath of Central Texas from the central Hill Country eastward through the I-35 corridor and our eastern counties. A slow-moving line of heavy thunderstorms is currently moving through the Metro area and other communities along I-35 bringing dangerous lightning and torrential downpours. This rain will cause rapid runoff, increasing flows in creeks and making low-water crossings extremely hazardous. A FLASH FLOOD WARNING is in effect for Williamson, Travis and Hays counties until 10:15 p.m.
The latest high-resolution computer models move these thunderstorms east of our area by 11 p.m., with rapid clearing to follow.
As drier air moves in overnight tonight, we have a beautiful stretch of weather to look forward to Sunday through Thanksgiving Day.
