SALLY: SOME PARENTS ARE UPSET THAT THE SCHOOL HAS YET TO SCHEDULE A MEETING ON WHAT HAPPENED. TALKING ABOUT YOUR WEATHER, THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 9:30. DAVID: TWO MORE HOURS WITH DANGEROUS CONDITIONS. MOST OF OUR FLASH FLOOD DEATHS AND INJURIES HAPPEN, NOT ONLY IN CARS, BUT IN THE DARK. THE CAREFUL OUT THERE FOR YOUR MORNING DRIVE. WE HAVE SEEN RAIN AND LIGHTNING MOVING BACK INTO LAKE WAY. THIS IS A GOOD INDICATION THAT, EVEN THOUGH THE RAIN IS CLEARING, WE HAVE A COUPLE MORE STORMS IN THE FORECAST. TEMPERATURES, IT IS JACKET WEATHER. THE COOLER AIR THAT MOVED AN OVERNIGHT FOR EVERYBODY EXCEPT FAYETTE COUNTY, THIS IS THE COLD FRONT MAKING PROGRESS. IT LIMITED HOW MUCH SEVERE WEATHER WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GET. IT WAS DIFFICULT TO PRODUCE SEVERE WEATHER IF OUR TEMPERATURES ARE LOW. THE BULK OF THE STORMS ARE PULLING OUT OF THE AREA. PULLING IN THE ENERGY FROM NORTHERN MEXICO AND NEAR RECORD AMOUNTS OF MOISTURE FEEDING IN FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO THIS MORNING. HERE IS A LOOK AT RADAR AS THE RAIN STARTS TO CLEAR. IT WILL NOT BE LIKE ANYTHING THIS MORNING. WE HAVE A LOT OF LOW WATER CROSSINGS CLOSED IN CEDAR PARK THROUGH THE MORNING. BE CAREFUL THERE. FLASH FLOOD WARNING HAS BEEN EXTENDED, NOT BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT MORE RAIN BECAUSE RUNOFF CONTINUES. LOW-WATER CROSSINGS ARE STILL DANGEROUS, ESPECIALLY FOR OUR MOST POPULATED AREAS IN TILL 9:30 THIS MORNING. RAIN TOTALS, THE HEAVIEST RIGHT THERE. YOU COMBINE THE TOTALS AND WE HAVE AN IMPERVIOUS SURFACE, PAVEMENT. WE CANNOT HANDLE A LOT OF RAIN ALIKE RURAL AREAS BECAUSE IT RUNS OFF. SAN MARCUS, WE HAVE HAD SOME RAY AND GAUGE CONFIRMATION OF OVER 4.5 INCHES OF RAIN — SOME RAIN GAUGE CONFIRMATION OF OVER FOUR AND A HALF INCHES OF RAIN. AT THE AIRPORT THREE AND A HALF INCHES OF RAIN. TO THE EAST, LA GRANGE IS NEXT IN LINE. I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO DOUBLE CHECK, NOT ONLY THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO HAIL, WE WILL CONFIRM THAT RIGHT NOW. NO HAIL INDICATED OVER THAT. I WANT TO CONFIRM THAT THERE ARE NO WIND ISSUES WITH THIS. WE SAW THAT CIRCULATION IN CALDWELL COUNTY, WE ARE SEEING GUSTY WINDS ALONG THAT LINE. UP TO 35 OR 40 MILES AN HOUR. GOOD REASON TO STAY INDOORS. THESE ARE STRONG BUT NOT SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS. FLASH FLOODING SEVERE THROUGH THE MORNING. OUR MAIN CONCERN IS WANING. WE CANNOT TAKE THAT MUCH RAIN IN AUSTIN WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE A FLASH FLOOD WARNING. OUTSIDE OF TOWN THE SOIL IS THIRSTY. WE CAN ABSORB THREE TO FOUR INCHES OF RAIN IN AN HOUR WITHOUT A FLASH FLOOD WARNING. FORECAST SHOWS THE HEAVIEST OF THE RAIN CONTINUING EASTWARD. WE HAVE THE LOOKOUT FOR SEVERE WEATHER ON HIGHWAY 77 THIS MORNING. THE BULK OF THE RAIN IS OUT OF HER BY LATE MORNING INTO LUNCHTIME. THE ONLY AREA WE ARE WATCHING HIS EAST OF AUSTIN FOR THE POTENTIAL OF A COUPLE OF STORMS TO REDEVELOP. SEVERE STORM OUTLOOK, IT IS POSSIBLE EAST OF 35, BUT FLASH FLOODING IS A BIGGER CONCERN. WE MIGHT END UP WITH A HALF A FOOT OF RAIN OR MORE IN A COUPLE OF AREAS. FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES UNTIL SOME :00 THIS EVENING. 73 THIS — INTEL
