Default Raining down south??

According to our cameras, were getting some much needed rain in Webb county. Anybody down there that can verify how much were getting? I know its not 3-5 of rain, but its a lot better than a heavy dew.

Finally got some tonight between George West and Freer. An inch May 1 helped, but it sure was dry again this past weekend.

What part of Webb?
Seems like the rain was scattered, probably missed our place in NW Webb.

Radar was lit up.
I know those Webb co hunters and ranchers needed it.
Spent last 8 years working there. Seems like it was either is dry and hot or flooding.

I don’t know how much we got but definitely got some. We are 10-15 miles west of Mirando City. Looked really heavy on radar but was moving quick.

we got screwed again... about 1/4". north Zapata/South Webb.

The storm absolutely blew up in intensity after it passed over my lease. the north side of the ranch got over an inch, but we just missed it

Our place is just west of Hwy 16 on FM624. We got 1.7" last night. I need five times that with the drought we have had and the recent freeze killing or stunning the brush. Only thing green is the mesquite.

Things are looking up in Webb county! Fawns should have plenty of cover to hide under after all this. Im sure my pond is overflowing at this point.

Not that far south but I've got 5" since last Friday. 3" of it last night. Weather report just said we have more until Monday. @ least a lot of it is soaking in. We'll see!

Webb Co, well at least eastern Webb got some serious rain.
Hopefully this won't be all we see this year.

Any reports from Western Webb (west of Encinal) watching the radar yesterday, looks like it finally got some.

we finally got some rain in north zapata. It was getting really bad. my farmlogs is saying we got an inch, but with the standing water I'm seeing on camera it has to be way more than that.

A buddy of mine, was traveling back to San Antonio, from Brownsville today. Somewhere not far north of Brownsville, it was raining very hard. Enough so, the highway was flooded to the point that there was a 18 wheeler that was dead in the water. So DPS had the south bound lanes shut down. This caused traffic to get backed up for miles.

It's monsooning down there, skip raining.
