Austin Drenched, Flood Watch In Place for Metro San Antonio

  A flash flood watch is in place for San Antonio and all areas to the north and west through early Monday, after Travis County got drenched with as much as a foot of rain early Sunday, 1200 WOAI news reports.


  The National Weather Service says several roads in and around Austin are flooded after the Barton Creek area of Austin received 11 inches of rain early today.   Austin Fire Department crews have reported numerous high water rescues in the city.


  "Although the intense rain has ended across the Austin areas as of 8AM this morning, more locally heavy rain is possible in the Austin area later today which could make the flooding issue even more dangerous," Paul Yura of the New Braunfels office of the National Weather Service said.


  An Additional 2-4 inches of rain over the Hill Country, Travis County and into the San Antonio area are possible Sunday and into Sunday night and early Monday.


  The heavy rains are expected to taper off on Monday, but another frontal system will hit the area on Tuesday and Wednesday, leaving to much cooler temperatures and a new threat of flooding conditions.


  The NWS suggests you stay tuned to 1200 WOAI, your designated official weather station, and WOAI.com for additional updated weather information.


 Currently there are no flooding events taking place in metro San Antonio and no significant road closings due to flooding are reported.
