The National Weather Service in San Angelo issued the following weather statement:
A POTENTIALLY HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT IS POSSIBLE ACROSS WEST CENTRAL TEXAS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...Is the City prepared to move Gajeske's pumps? A runoff event like September 2012 would put them underwater. Pray for a big rain, huge runoff and a prepared City Water Department.
THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL TO DEVELOP ACROSS WEST CENTRAL TEXAS BEGINNING SATURDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUING THROUGH TUESDAY. WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE EXPECTED WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.
Update 10-12-13: The event shifted slightly with heavier rains expected Sunday through Wednesday. A four day rain event could be an incredible blessing for our parched lakes.
