Flash Flood Watch Through Thursday for Victoria County
It looks like it will be a great week for singing in the rain in South Texas. For some parts of the country, it's April showers that bring the May flowers but in Tejas, the month of May features more severe weather than any other. This week, heavy rains are in the forecast for the Crossroads with some projections from the National Weather Service calling for six to eight inches of rainfall in Victoria county by the end of the day Friday.
Heavy Rain Expected Through Friday
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to bring heavy rains to the Crossroads through Thursday afternoon and into Friday morning. Rainfall totals will be high resulting in the rising of our area streams and creeks. Rain totals between 3 and 8 inches are expected to come down over South Texas. Rivers could rise causing flooding in low-lying areas of Victoria county.
Flash Flood Watch issued for Victoria County through Thursday Afternoon
An upper-level area of low pressure is slowly moving east from New Mexico into the Texas panhandle causing moisture and unstable air to settle over South Texas and the Crossroads through Thursday. The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Victoria County until Thursday afternoon.
A Flood Warning is already in place to the east of Victoria for the San Bernard River near Boling. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast for Victoria County for today and tonight.
Rip Current Risk for South Texas Beaches
The risk for Rip Currents will be moderate near the Crossroads with a higher risk to the east near the Brazoria Islands, Matagorda Islands, and out near the Bolivar Penisula and Galveston Island.
