After a weekend deluge that hit parts of Texas, there is a risk for additional flooding as more heavy rain and moisture from Octave targets the state into midweek.
While there are benefits from the rain, there is a high probability of more road closures from flooding and low water crossings will be especially susceptible.
The ground is already saturated from a general 2-4 inches over the weekend. A portion of the rain will runoff instead of being absorbed into the ground as a result.

An additional 2-4 inches will fall across central Texas through Wednesday with the majority of that rain falling late Tuesday into early Wednesday. The heaviest rain will fall from the Big Bend area to the northeastern corner of the state. There is a potential for some places to get double that amount and 1-2 inches could fall in as little as one hour.
Some of the Texas cities at risk for additional heavy rain and flooding include Waco, Austin, Del Rio and College Station. However, cities such as Dallas, San Antonio, San Angelo and Houston could receive heavy rain and some urban flooding.
The rain over the past few weeks has helped alleviate the severe drought conditions impacting parts of the state.
As moisture from the diminishing Octave moves ashore through Wednesday, it will bring torrential rain along with life threatening flash flooding and mudslides over part of northern Mexico.
