AUSTIN, Texas — A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Saturday evening as we expect several more rounds of heavy rain in the days to come.
Scattered showers and storms will return Thursday, especially late in the day, as a front moves into the region. Rain chances increase to 60% for Thursday evening. Isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible Thursday afternoon and evening. The “slight risk” — level two out of five — is in place for areas just east of Austin.
Another round of scattered showers and storms is possible Friday afternoon and evening. A disturbance will move into the state early Saturday allowing for numerous showers and storms.
Rainfall amounts could add up to an additional 2 to 3 inches, with isolated locations east of Austin recording as much as 5 to 7 inches.
Due to saturated soil, additional flash flooding and river flooding will be possible through the weekend.
Be sure to stay out of flooded areas. You can find out which low water crossings are closed by clicking here.
Rain chances decrease as we head into next week, including an isolated chance of rain for Mother’s Day Sunday.
