Oh Hail! And be aware of bears and snakes, too!
Bears, hail, snakes and rain were the main topics around Edwards County this week. As of deadline time Tuesday, heavy rains were occurring over the area causing flood and high water warnings. Due to the area being already saturated with past rains, this moisture could only head to the ditches.
The reason for all the rainfall we are receiving is a tropical low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, tropical moisture is expected for portions of South Central Texas through Wednesday night, bringing an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms.
1-3 inches of rainfall are forecast through Tuesday night across the western counties. Isolated higher amounts are possible.
Given the weak and disorganized nature of the system, this is a lower confidence rain forecast and was likely to change depending on the eventual track of the potential system.
Last week, areas had experienced high winds and hail causing extensive damage to foliage, vehicles, houses, etc.
