The TX Soaker Is Getting Underway...
The above image of the Laughlin AFB radar (located about 30 miles East of Del Rio, TX) was taken just a few moments ago. It shows the beginnings of the "Texas soaker", as rain is breaking out over Mexico, and moving Eastward.
Precipitation will continue to expand and intensify overnight as it moves Eastward into Texas, leading to widespread, much needed rain and thunderstorm activity across the region.
See my earlier post for more detailed information on what to expect from this system.
