Bulletin Staff Report

The remnants of Tropical Storm Edouard hovered over the Brownwood area Wednesday morning, cooling temperatures significantly and leaving as much as five inches of rain in the Zephyr and Priddy area.

A flash flood warning was posted for southeast Brown and Mills, Comanche and Eastland counties early Wednesday. But most residents simply basked in the cool, damp conditions unusual for an August day in Texas.

Rainfall amounts in Brownwood were less than those recorded east and south of the city - mostly less than one inch. Showers stopped around noon as the center of the storm moved north and west toward Abilene. High temperatures barely got out into the 80s.

The National Weather Service office in San Angelo said a few showers and thunderstorms could linger today, but those will be mainly in the areas west of Brownwood. A high temperature in the lower 90s was forecast.
