After a quiet and relatively dry night, forecasters cancelled flood warnings in Bastrop County for Monday morning. Though the worst of the flooding appears to be behind us, clean up from Sundays floods continues.
High water is still being monitored in areas of the Colorado River in Bastrop County, Plum Creek near Luling and the San Marcos River near Luling.
More rain is also in the forecast. YNN meteorologists are predicting a 40 percent chance of showers Monday increasing to a 50 percent chance of rain on Tuesday as a cold front moves into Central Texas. There’s also a 50 percent chance of showers and isolated storms on Wednesday.
As of Monday morning, all Austin-area low water crossings were open. City trails and golf courses, however, remain closed while city officials assess unsafe conditions, including fallen tree limbs and eroded pathways.
UPDATE 10 a.m.: The Austin Parks and Recreation Department Golf Division has reopened the Morris Williams, Lions and Roy Kizer golf courses. The Jimmy Clay and Hancock courses are still being evaluated.
City officials have also warned residents that recreation in Barton Creek is banned until noon Tuesday. Emergency crews had to rescue a kayaker who fell from his kayak while attempting to paddle on rising flood waters on Barton Creek on Sunday evening.
