A Look at Rainfall Totals in Texas

Above is a summary of precipitation that occurred across Texas, mainly during the period Friday through Sunday.

As you can see, widespread amounts of 2-5 inches were received along the I-35 corridor from San Antonio through the Austin area (darker yellow, orange and red shaded areas on the image).

The darker green shadings represent 1-2 inch rains, which took place across a significant portion of the state, as well as portions of western and northern Oklahoma.

Heavy rains fell yesterday across Arkansas and Louisiana (as represented on the right hand side of the image).

As the rain fell across Texas over a 3 day period, there were no instances of significant flooding.  Unfortunately, this won't be the case as the system moves to the Eastern U.S. through Wednesday.
