After being battered by two tropical systems in roughly one week, South Texas will enjoy continuing dry weather on Sunday.

An area of high pressure situated over the western Gulf of Mexico will keep South Texas free of rain on Sunday. The corridor of moisture and storminess will be directed over Mexico, western Texas and the Four Corners region instead.

The ground across South Texas will then be given time to dry out after being inundated by drenching rain from both Tropical Depression 2 and Hurricane Alex.

The latter storm unleashed the heaviest rainfall totals. Brownsville, Texas, picked up 10.53 inches of rain from June 29 to July 9.

Runoff from the tropical systems has swelled the waterways across South Texas.

Officials have purposely flooded the Rio Grande River in attempts to relieve stress from the flooded Lake Amistad.
