Week­end a wash? De­pends on your feel­ings about rain

Austin American-Statesman - - METRO&STATE -

A wet Congress Av­enue got doused fur­ther Fri­day – and it’s ex­pected to con­tinue. A flash flood watch is in ef­fect this morn­ing, and the sog­gi­ness is fore­cast to last through the week­end.

The Austin Po­lice Depart­ment will en­force a so-called no-re­fusal ini­tia­tive for the Fourth of July week­end, start­ing at 9 p.m. to­day and end­ing at 5 a.m. Sun­day.

Dur­ing the ini­tia­tive, peo­ple sus­pected of driv­ing drunk will have their blood tested un­der a search war­rant if they refuse to give a breath or blood spec­i­men.
