September 26, 2016 1:45 PM |

Rain in Texas 1Torrential rains will continue over central parts of the United States throughout Monday night. Heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue over parts of Texas. The worst affected region, with the highest risk for flooding, will be western parts of Texas.

A cool front blew through Central Texas on Sunday and brought good amounts of rainfall in several locations. Flooding was reported in some portions over the weekend. Risk of flooding will increase with each passing downpour.

Damaging winds in the city of Marlin uprooted several trees and caused damage to few establishments. Media reports from the Falls County confirmed disruption of some power lines.

According to the National Weather Service, around 8 mm of rain was reported at the Waco Regional Airport, 14 mm at Lake Waco and 19 mm in Crawford. Robertson County received good showers of about 48 mm, later in the afternoon.

The rain belt will gradually move eastwards over the Midwest. We cannot rule out damaging winds over several areas.

Localized flooding is likely in places where continuous rains will occur for about 6 to 12 hours. Moreover the grounds are already saturated from heavy rain earlier this week.

Parts of Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin have recorded more than 6 inches of rain during the gone by week. So much so that many streams and rivers were seen overflowing.

Flooding rains were observed across the southern Plains right from western Texas to central Oklahoma over the weekend.

The rain belt will now expand into southeastern parts of New Mexico. Localized rains will be observed over several areas but flooding risk will be confined to west of Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

The main concern area will be across the Big Bend region in Texas up to Red River Valley.
