AUSTIN, Texas — Memorial Day has arrived, and storms across the Hill Country this afternoon produced locally heavy rain, lightning, and small hail. Several Flash Flood Warnings were issued for parts of Gillespie County, but they have all been allowed to expire as the heavy rain has tapered off. 

For the I-35 corridor and points east, the overall rain chance remains low this evening, but we still can't rule out some widely scattered pop up storms.

The overall storm chance this evening is 30 percent, so not everyone will see rain. You don't need to cancel the outdoor barbeque, but keep an eye to the sky. Remember, when thunder roars go indoors.

If your plans involve boating on our local lakes, we want you to stay safe. Please wear a life jacket and do not drink while operating a boat at any time. The Lower Colorado River Authority has launched a Flood Operations Notification System (FONS). We encourage you to sign up so you can get alerts in case there are any dam releases as a result of potential flooding.
