The Blotter

Lampasas Police Dept. blotter for Monday showed relative quiet with the exception of calls and problems with high water. An assault by threat took place on Park Lane at 10:16am, then at 3:35pm two thefts were reported in the 2700 block of Hwy 281S. There was one minor accident in the 1300 block of S. Key at 6;34pm.

Enough Already!

Authorities, and Kempner area residents have a watchful eye on the Lampasas River Bridge on Hwy 190E at Kempner. Flood stage there is 18ft and NWS reports had it at about 15ft earlier this morning. Additional rainfall, or more swollen water coming down will bring the levels up. NWS says they believe it will crest at 22ft this afternoon before it starts down. That could cause the highway to be closed until the water recedes.

The Weather

Tonight:  A 100% chance of rain again overnight, some of it could be heavy, with a low around 41° and north wind 15-20 mph and gusting to 25. Not a pleasant evening.

Tuesday:  A 90% chance of rain, a high of 45° and more strong north wind as this severe cold front does its thing. The wind will be 10-15 mph with gusts to 20.
