Daily Update for Tuesday, Oct. 15


  • Rain remains in the forecast for Gillespie County as weathermen predict chances of showers increasing up to 80 percent by 4 p.m. today and then continuing at that same high percentage from midnight through 10 a.m. tomorrow. Corresponding with that is a National Weather Service-issued flash flood watch in effect for all of South Central Texas from 5 p.m. this afternoon through 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. Widespread one to two inch amounts of rain are expected with localized higher amounts of three to five inches possible.
  • Hill Country CattleWomen will meet at 10 a.m. at Buzzie's Barbecue in Kerrville.

          Tennis anyone?

  • Fredericksburg High School's varsity tennis players have a 4 p.m. match scheduled against Class 5A Copperas Cove on Llano High School's. Any weather-related cancellations or delays will be announced by mid-afternoon when the team is due to load up the bus and head north.
  • The Billie netters will be looking to add to their 15-0 winning streak, following Saturday's 10-0 (17-2) victory over Mason. That, plus a district forfeit by Canyon Lake the same day, puts the FHS team at 17-4 on the season and 5-0 in district play — making the Billies District 27-3A champions and qualifiers for the regional team tennis tourney Nov. 1-2 in San Marcos.

          It's also a big volleyball day—
