(SOURCE)  Emergency management officials in Texas are preparing for heavy rains throughout the weekend and the widespread flooding that may follow. 

“Bands of heavy rain and thunderstorms have been impacting Texas over the past few days,” said weather.com meteorologist Quincy Vagell. “In some areas, persistently intense rainfall is causing minor to moderate to occur.”

Weekend rains are expected to intensify as Hurricane Patricia continues its journey northeast.

“As Patricia moves across Mexico, remnant moisture will stream north into Texas,” said Vagell. “The ex-hurricane will then develop into a non-tropical low when it reaches Texas in the coming days, producing additional heavy rain and coastal flooding.”
