Heavy rain in the city

Not long after a few days of near-freezing temperatures and light rain showers, San Antonio may be in store for more bleak weather. The latest report from the National Weather Service says the forecast for the area will make residents want to stay indoors and exercise caution out on the roads on Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8.

The detailed report, released Monday, February 6, says a cold front may mean heavy rain and potentially even severe storms for South-Central Texas, meaning San Antonio and Austin. Though the heavy rainfall is expected to move out of the area by late Wednesday afternoon, San Antonio may have a very wet Tuesday afternoon and rest of the day as the storms make their way through the city.

The current forecast says San Antonio is in store for more rain.

While there may be bits of precipitation west of San Antonio and in the Texas Hill Country, the rain is expected to be most present along and east of U.S. Highway 281, though areas east of I-35 and I-37 could see its fair share of rain too. In these areas, the National Weather Service warns that there is a small chance of flooding.

Residents east of U.S. Highway 281 should be aware of a potential for an isolated strong to severe storm during this time as well. Though flooding is possible in this area, experts say the “damaging” winds will be the most serious threat.
