Storms Returning to Central Texas

National Weather Service
Central Texas is expected to receive more rain.

Looking for an excuse to dip out of work early? Here’s one, courtesy of the National Weather Service’s Austin - San Antonio bureau:

“The afternoon rush hour will be a mess along the I-35 corridor,” it writes on its Facebook page. “You can avoid the worst backups by leaving now or waiting until after 6 pm.”

Following yesterday’s rains (and flooding in Bastrop County), more storms are expected tonight. The NWS anticipates under a inch of rain for most of the region, although some areas may receive as much as four inches, and wind gusts as high as 40 mph.
