Flooding Hampers Travel with 2 More Inches of Rain Likely Across West Texas Friday


SAN ANGELO – About 3/4 of an inch of rain fell between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. Friday morning in the San Angelo area on average with an additional two inches likely as temperatures remain steady in the mid 40s. 

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service office in San Angelo say a broad band of rain developed around 4 a.m Friday morning across all of West Texas and the Weather Prediction Center says the rain will continue most of the day and into the overnight hours Friday.  Three inches of rain is possible locally which could cause continued flooding of streets and small streams and arroyos across the region. 

Street flooding in San Angelo made driving challenging during the morning commute Friday.  

The forecast calls for a 100% chance of continued rain during the day Friday with an 80% chance Friday night before the weather system moves off to the northeast.  Look for clearing skies and breezy conditions Saturday.  

Look for a warming trend throughout the next four days.
