UNDATED (AP) - A soggy July fourth?

Forecasters say more rain could be in store for parts of Texas going into the Independence Day holiday.

The National Weather Service says flash flood warnings were in effect today for parts of Starr, Brown and San Saba counties.

Wet weather has plagued some areas of Texas for days, while others recover from flooding blamed on rain-swollen rivers and creeks.

Some people are still out of their flood-threatened homes in parts of Texas.

In related news:
All this flooding in parts of Texas, right before the July fourth holiday, has led to the closure of some popular lakes.

The Lower Colorado River Authority has closed Lake Travis, Inks Lake, Lake Marble Falls and Lake LBJ due to high water and safety concerns.

Some state parks also will be shut down until further notice.
