28 Sep 2017, 12:47 pm

Abundant moisture and stalled frontal boundary will be the focus for heavy rain for the Southern Plains Thursday.  Some areas could see over 2 inches of rainfall through Friday afternoon.

Here is a look at the set-up for Thursday.

A large trough digging over the Rockies and Four Corners region is allowing abundant moisture to push into northern Mexico and south Texas.  A cold front is pushing south and is the focus for showers and heavy rain.

Flash flood watches are in effect for counties in south central Texas through Thursday evening.

These are the areas that expecting 1 to 2 inches of rainfall with localized 3 inches possible through Thursday night. A flash flood watch means conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. If you are in this area you will definitely want to be on alert and prepared to take action if a flash flood warning is issued.

More rain could be on the way for southern Texas by early next week. Here is a look at some extended forecasts for the Lone Star State.

The heavy rain is not only moving through south Texas, but it is also pushing up through the southern Rockies. In the higher elevations there is even a chance for a few inches of snowfall.

Rainfall potential throughout New Mexico and southern Colorado will likely range from 2-4 inches into Saturday morning.  No flash flood watches for this region yet, but that could change by Friday.
