SAN ANGELO – Badly needed rain fell across parts of West Texas Wednesday night and should continue and intensify across the Concho Valley Thursday afternoon with chances lingering well into next week.
According to information from the National Weather Service office in San Angelo, an outflow boundary from overnight thunderstorms has dissipated near San Angelo Thursday morning and will allow showers and thunderstorms to redevelop Thursday afternoon in the Brady area and then move south to along the I-10 corridor between Sonora and Kerrville.
Rain is expected to form across the San Angelo area Thursday afternoon between 1 and 4 p.m. and some of the slow moving thunderstorms could product 1/2 to 2 inches of rain. Heavier thunderstorms could produce flash flooding and street flooding.
The unstable conditions are expected to increase by early next week allowing for the development of more and possibly heaver rain through mid week. Rainfall amounts are expected between 1 and 3 inches Monday through Wednesday and afternoon high temperatures should fall to the lower to mid 80s by Tuesday and Wednesday.
For now, it appears the 100 degree days are over and a wetter weather pattern has returned to West Texas at least for the two weeks heading into Labor Day and dove and football season.
There is a 60 percent chance of rain Thursday afternoon and night; a 50 percent chance Friday dropping to 20 percent for Saturday and Sunday before increasing to 50 percent Sunday night and 60 percent for Monday through Wednesday.
Residents are advised to plan outdoor activities accordingly and monitor the ever changing weather conditions for further updates.
