How will today’s heavy rains impact flow rates on the Guadalupe River?
Comal County Engineer Tom Hornseth today at Comal County Commissioners Court unveiled a new feature on his website, cceo.org, that allows users to access U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) predictions about flow rates at all monitoring locations on the Guadalupe River.
For example, the current flow rate of the Guadalupe River at Spring Branch is 0.00 cubic feet per second (cfs). By Sunday, it will approach 250 cfs he said.
“These are the tools you can use to start forecasting what might be happening on the river,” Hornseth said. “And when we do have an extreme event, which we will some day, these are really handy tools to try to see exactly how crazy things might get in the future because these predictions are usually pretty good.”
