Record rainfall for the date

Three and a third inches by 11 p.m. for Austin’s official national weather station at Camp Mabry, according to KXAN meteorologists. It’s a record for May 5.

More than two dozen  low-water crossings across Travis County are closed , including West 45th Street at Shoal Creek, due to high, rapidly-moving water which can sweep cars and trucks away before the occupants know it.

And there’s a chance of more rain each day through the weekend.

  1. Wow. We are, thankfully, passed to the rainless period. Till November – I hope.

  2. Maybe not. Weather in the West often moves to the East and you and us are on almost the same Latitude.
