Hermine Inland...Still a Tropical Storm for Now

The above image from the New Braunfels, TX radar was taken about 5 minutes ago.  The center of Hermine was located about 35 miles Southwest of Mathis, and was moving North Northwest at 17 mph.  Maximum sustained winds remain at about 45 mph.  Now that Hermine is mostly inland, weakening of the winds will take place today, but heavy rains will continue.

The latest forecast of total rainfall for today shows a widespread swath of 4-6 inch rains for much of southcentral through central Texas.  Localized amounts of 6-10 inches will be possible.  This will eventually spread Northward into Northwest Texas later today and tonight.

On Wednesday, heavy rains will spread Northward into Oklahoma...
