More rain forecast for Central Texas


Associated Press

AUSTIN — Parts of Central Texas are expected to get more rain Tuesday evening into Wednesday as a cold front moves through the area.

The National Weather Service says the front will combine with moist air from the Gulf of Mexico to drop as much as four inches of rain in places creating the possibility for flash floods. Rainfall should average one to two inches.

That would come as people continue to clean up following torrential rains that amounted to as much as foot in a 12-hour period last weekend near Austin. Those rains forced organizers to cancel the final day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
