Meteorologist Eric Platt of the National Weather Service in New Braunfels saw forecast models earlier in the day.
“We’re expecting a complex of thunderstorms to be moving in from the west, and so the main concern we’re looking at is the possibility of some large hail, damaging winds with this line of thunderstorms and also some heavy rainfall,.” he said.
Welp. Our back yard is flooding. We’re under a flash flood and tornado warning.
Based on radar, any rotation is probably north of us right now. We’re on a gentle grade, so not worried about flooding. But things have been hitting the side of the house. pic.twitter.com/gJV6Q0nDPl
