SAN ANGELO – Heavy rainfall Tuesday morning caused slick roadways and minor flooding across the Concho Valley including the City of San Angelo where several crashes slowed traffic during the morning commute.
According to the National Weather Service office in San Angelo, the bands of heavy rain are associated with a Pacific frontal system that is dumping freezing rain and snow in the Big Country around Abilene and as far south as Robert Lee.
The storm system is fast moving and meteorologists forecast the heavy rain will end by noon in San Angelo with showers continuing through mid afternoon. There is a 100% chance of rain Tuesday morning.
Cooler temperatures will linger throughout the rest of the week but the rain chances end Tuesday. Overnight temps will drop to below freezing with afternoon highs warming each day to the lower 50s.
