Floodgate operations are currently underway at Buchanan Dam and Mansfield Dam as of Thursday evening. Two additional floodgates have also been partially opened at Tom Miller Dam. Highland Lakes are high and are swift moving. Lake Travis is currently 106% full.
Scattered showers and storms are possible Friday afternoon and evening. A disturbance will move into the state early Saturday, allowing for numerous showers and storms. Some could produce flash flooding and creek and river flooding.
Rainfall amounts could add up to an additional one or two inches, with isolated locations seeing more.
Due to saturated soil, additional flash flooding and river flooding will be possible through the weekend.
