Heavy Rain Possible

As the rain moves in Monday evening, this is only the beginning of a three day rain event across East Texas. We will see multiple rounds of rain, leading to some healthy rainfall totals. Our in house computer model, Futurecast, shows about 1-2 inches through Wednesday evening. There could be isolated spots as high as 3-4 inches! Right now, our soils can take in a lot of the rain but I am concerned about the potential for Flash Flooding by midweek. Remember, if you approach a road that has water over it, Turn Around, Don't Drown! Flash flooding kills more people every year than any other type of severe weather. As the rain accumulates, let us know how much you receive. Click the comment link below to leave your rain total and community.
