WACO, Texas (KWTX) The wet weather was likely a factor in a series of accidents that backed up traffic late Monday afternoon on southbound Interstate 35 in Waco.

By 5 p.m. Monday, traffic was backed up to the U.S. Highway 84/Bellmead Drive exit and the Texas Department of Transportation was advising motorists to expect delays of 20 minutes or more.

Two of the three southbound lanes were closed because of the crashes.
