AUSTIN, Texas The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for South Central Texas through Wednesday morning as a cold front moves through the area carrying the possibility of heavy rains.

The service said Tuesday afternoon that 1 to 2 inches of rain are expected with as much as 3 to 5 inches in some areas. With the heavy rain received last weekend, the forecasters said there would be rapid runoff of any new water. The watch was scheduled to expire at 7 a.m. Wednesday.

That would come as people continue to clean up following torrential rains that amounted to as much as a foot in a 12-hour period last weekend near Austin. Those rains forced organizers to cancel the final day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
