Heavy Rain Expected Early Tuesday

Things may get a little rough around the San Antonio area early Tuesday Morning.

Forecasters expect a line of heavy rain to begin moving through the area sometime around 4 AM.

“One to two inches is what we have up–but for the San Antonio metro area, it’s probably going to be closer to the one inch mark” National Weather Service Forecaster Brett Williams told KTSA News, adding “The heavier amounts will be up toward Austin and the Hill Country.”

Williams said the heavy rainfall is the biggest concern for folks in and around the Alamo City–but the system will pack a bit of a punch.

“Wind gusts of up to 50 to 60 miles per hour are possible… hail up to quarter (size)” Williams said.

In the end, the timing of when the rain arrives will be the biggest factor in determining how much impact it will have.

“If it moves a little bit quicker than we’re anticipating, it could be moved through the metro area by morning rush hour. If it’s a little bit slower, it could actually be impacting the area right at rush hour” Williams said.
