Storms move through Central Texas after 51-day rainless streak

The 51-day dry spell is over, and now it is time for a rainy streak. 

For the second straight day, rain is falling all across the area. Some areas are expected to see between 1-2 inches. 

Severe weather is unlikely, but lightning and localized flooding may occur.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for San Saba County until 7:15 p.m.


Rain activity is expected to dismiss by late Friday evening.

This weekend will not be as rainy as Thursday and Friday, but we will slide into another cooler and rainy weather pattern next week.
