Heavy rain, flash flooding possible Monday

DISCUSSION

A cold front set to move over Central Texas late Monday and into Tuesday is expected to bring heavy rain and a possibility of flash flooding to the region.

Timing on the front has it moving into the Hill Country during the afternoon hours and into the evening commute. The heavy rain will push into the Austin metro area at the tail end of the evening commute, with counties to the south and east of Austin seeing the heaviest rain in the evening and overnight hours.

Light to moderate rain will be possible before the front, but the bulk of the rainfall will move through late Monday and early Tuesday. One model run is showing rain totals ranging from around 1/2 inch to more than 3 inches of rain by 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service’s main concern with this front is flash flooding, with hail and wind as secondary concerns. The tornado threat with this cold front is low.
