CORPUS CHRISTI – Heavy rain continue to fall across portions of the Coastal Bend this evening. The flash flood watch has been extended for all of South Texas through tomorrow morning. Some of these storms could drop another one to two inches of rain or more. This is going to cause localized flooding in parts of the area. People should use extreme caution if getting out on the roadways this evening. The forecast for tonight calls for showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall.
