Heavy Rains Could Threaten Rivers in Hill Country, NWS Says

Heavy rains this week could saturate soils and elevate rivers in the Texas Hill Country.

The National Weather Service’s West Gulf River Forecast Center (NWSWGRFC) warns that heavy rains could threaten rivers in the Texas Hill Country over the next few days.

Waves of rainfall predicted to begin Wednesday could create “some isolated, impactful flooding in areas that get intense rainfall.”

“Mostly it will saturate soils and elevate rivers in advance of even heavier rainfall forecast for this weekend,” NWSWGRFC said.

Major impact of rainfall over the next three days will be keeping soils saturated and river-levels elevated.

The area is very saturated with rivers rising with only an inch of rainfall in some places, NWSWGRFC said.
