DISCUSSION: Looking back a little over 16 years ago today, there was a very memorable rainfall event which unfolded across portions of South-Central Texas. As shown in the graphic above, this occurred under the circumstances of a slow-moving cold front interacting with the mid/upper-level moisture dynamics associated with two separate hurricanes (i.e., Hurricane Madeline and Hurricane Lester). A very interesting and prolific event to say the least! To say that flooding and flash flooding was a problem during the course of this multi-day rainfall event would be a complete understatement.
