Hurricane Harvey remains unpredictable, but the NWS says to expect very heavy rainfall over the next several days and tropical storm winds of 40-50mph with gusts up to 60mph. Rainfall is expected to be heaviest east of I-35 – possibly “catastrophic” according to the NWS – but all of Hays County is expected to be affected.
