TTR Weather Update for COLORADO, JACKSON, and WHARTON Counties from the National Weather Service in Houston – Galveston

No Comments

A few thunderstorms will be possible across parts of Southeast Texas this afternoon through early evening, with widespread rain and the potential for severe thunderstorms returning to the forecast this weekend. Elevated tides may lead to enhanced rip current risks or minor coastal flooding along Gulf facing beaches this weekend.

A cold front will move from northwest to southeast across the region this afternoon and evening, with thunderstorms developing along the cold front before it completely exits the region after 7 PM. A few thunderstorms along this line may be strong to severe, with best chances for severe thunderstorms east of a Madisonville to Huntsville to Winnie line.

How far south thunderstorms will develop today along the cold front will be impacted by how stable the atmosphere is when the front arrives. If it is less stable than current data indicates, storms may form farther south and west in Southeast Texas than currently anticipated. If it is more stable, then thunderstorm development may be limited or not occur in Southeast Texas.


Breezy to windy conditions are expected across Southeast Texas during the day Friday and Saturday ahead of an approaching cold front. Elevated winds ahead of this front will result in increasing tide levels on Friday and Saturday, resulting in enhanced rip current risks and/or minor coastal flooding along Gulf facing beaches. Showers and thunderstorms are again expected to develop along the cold front as it moves across the region Saturday night and Sunday morning. Some thunderstorms may be strong to severe and capable of locally heavy rainfall. Based on current data, the overall speed of the cold front is expected to prevent a widespread flooding threat.

  San Marcos River below Luling Affecting Caldwell and Gonzales Counties

All persons with interests along the river should monitor
the latest forecasts, and be prepared to take necessary
precautions to protect life and property.

River stage forecasts are based on observed rainfall along with
predicted rain for the next 12 hours. If actual rainfall varies
from forecast values, forecast river stages will vary.

Do not drive automobiles through flooded areas. Remember, 18 inches
of water or less can carry away most vehicles, including trucks.

If you see flood waters or come upon a flooded roadway, remember
to turn around and do not drown.

TTR Weather Update for DE WITT, FAYETTE, GONZALES, and LAVACA Counties from the National Weather Service Austin / San Antonio.

The widespread heavy rainfall event did not materialize overnight as our official forecast and most of the computer models advertised yesterday. The cold front that was to have assisted with the development of storms stalled overnight north of the area near a Temple to Junction line.

The front has since moved slightly farther south this morning and will enhance rainfall potential through the morning hours near the Austin metro area and then east of I-35 this afternoon.

The Flash Flood Watch was allowed to expire earlier this morning. Widespread heavy rainfall is no longer expected. Despite this, some isolated downpours of 1-2 inches are possible and could potentially cause localized flooding impacts, mainly in the previously mentioned areas near the Austin metro area this morning and then east of I-35 this afternoon. Small hail is also possible in some of the stronger storms.


Low to moderate.

TTR WEATHER UPDATE for COLORADO, JACKSON, and WHARTON Counties from the National Weather Service Houston – Galveston.

Here’s a quick update on the forecast for tonight. Thunderstorms remain possible for parts of the region from this evening into Tuesday morning as a cold front approaches from the north. Some of the thunderstorms may be strong to severe and capable of large hail, damaging winds, and locally heavy rainfall. Areas north of a Brenham to Groveton line have the best potential to see severe weather and/or locally heavy rain during this time.


There is the potential for thunderstorms to develop into a larger complex later tonight and move south towards the Gulf, with best rain chances occurring west of the Brazos River if this happens. We have also included an updated outlook for river flooding for concerned parties.
