All eyes are still Tropical Storm Harvey as it continues to dump heavy rain on South and Southeast Central Texas. Catastrophic flooding is still an issue along the coast. Our thoughts are with our neighbors down in the Southeast part of Texas.

As of 7:00 a.m. Monday, Harvey is still a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The latest track of Harvey has the eye of the storm continuing towards the Southeast, move over the Gulf, re-intensify and affect Houston (once again), as well as East Texas, and Southwest Louisiana. The outer bands are continuing to sweep across the southern and southeastern half of Central Texas. Some areas near the Brazos Valley have seen over 14 inches of rain in the past 48 hours. Heavy rainfall is expected to continue across parts of Texas for the next several days. Although Harvey is weakening, flooding is still going to be a concern for the Brazos Valley. If Harvey does continue the track that it's on, along and west of I-35 will be mostly dry from here on out.

There are still Flash Flood Watches in effect for the southern half of Central Texas through at least the beginning of the week. Flooding will need to be monitored as the heavy rainfall bands Northeast of Houston are continuing to spin up towards the Southeast part of Central Texas. There is good news regarding possible tornadic activity across Central Texas. The threat for spin-up tornadoes is nearly zero, as we are on the weakest side of the storm.
