Central Texas is due for storms this week. Yesterday we had rain early in the morning, and had 0.42 inches of rain. Then it was cloudy and clearing skies the rest of the day.
Today we had cloudy skies, just light sprinkles. Then we suddenly got rain and wind. In about 45 minutes we got over 0.79 inches of rain. I can’t give you an exact amount as in the middle of the rain we got quite a lightning storm and power outages. We had about 4 power outages in a matter of 10 minutes. The power went out, then back on so the outages were quick. But the rain continued to fall and the weather station couldn’t keep up during the outages. So we got just over 0.79 inches, but I couldn’t give you an exact amount. But after a while it has stopped. But we will have flooding, my front walk area is flooded, but I’m sure it will drain quickly.
The storming is due to continue for the next week. We should get quite a bit of rain they say. Austin could get upwards of 7-10 inches. We’ll see how much we actually get. But we are expected to get rain for the next 7 days, until Tuesday May 25. Who knows, over that number of days we may actually get that much.
But as it stand right now, between yesterday and right now, and its not quite 3pm, we’ve already had an inch of rain.
So I will keep tabs on how much rain we get as best as I can.
