We remain under a flash flood watch.

Here is the National Weather Service Update:


After stalling along the coast today for a few hours, Tropical Storm Bill is making steady northward progress this evening. The bands of intense tropical rainfall of 2 to 4 inches per hour will begin to spread into the region from the south later tonight and into Wednesday. The central Texas area will start seeing this heavy rainfall after midnight and it may last through Wednesday morning. The north Texas area, including the DFW Metroplex will see this heavy rainfall spread into the area during the morning hours, and it may last into Wednesday evening.

Here is the forecast path:



The remains of T.S. Bill will continue to lift northward into portions of north/central TX on Wednesday. With the widespread moisture, heavy rain additional river flooding and flash flooding is expected...especially along and east of the I-35 corridor. In addition--there will be a threat for a few very brief tornadoes. While brief...these tornadoes will still be capable of very fine corridors of damage. Make sure that you have multiple ways to receive warning information.

Information is from the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Prediction Center.
