Many areas of the Crossroads experienced heavy rainfall Friday, but it is not expected to continue throughout the weekend.
Radars calculated the two hours of rainfall which started in the Victoria area about 1 p.m. left about .36 inches of rain, said National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Cordero.
Most of the rain hit the northeast area of Victoria County with slightly more than an inch of rain, while the Mission Valley area got between three-quarters and a full inch of rain, Cordero said.
Victoria proper was the "low man on the totem pole" in terms of precipitation, Cordero said.
There were scattered thunderstorms and wind gusts in the Calhoun County area, with winds reaching 60 mph in Port O'Connor.
Hail the size of quarters hit northeast of Cuero combined with heavy rain. Westhoff received between one and two inches of rain and about an inch fell near Yoakum. The city of Cuero received between three-quarters and a full inch of rain, Cordero said.
However the weekend is expected to be dry with high winds, increasing fire danger Saturday.
"Behind this cold front will be rather dry and picturesque throughout the weekend," Cordero said.
