Rainfall Update: Totals across South Central Texas following Tuesday’s rain

Overall, higher rainfall amounts were found to the east and lower amounts to the west

Lower rainfall totals were generally found to the west, while the higher rainfall totals were found to the east.

Tuesday brought much-needed rain to parts of South Central Texas as a strong area of low pressure pushed across the state, sparking severe weather in East Texas and snow in North Texas.

While it won’t be enough to completely alleviate drought conditions, the rain was certainly welcomed considering January had only brought 0.01″ of rain to San Antonio prior to Tuesday’s rain event.
