Cool front on the way, Flash Flood Watch in effect

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Expect more rain ahead of a cold front that’s expected to arrive in San Antonio Wednesday evening.  Heavy rain Tuesday evening and early Wednesday triggered a Flash Flood Warning for Northwest Bexar County and parts of Kendall and Comal counties until 6 .m.

“Overnight, we got about 1  1/2″ to 2 1/2″ in Northwest San Antonio, so we did issue a Flash Flood Warning for that area,” said meteorologist Yvette Benavides-Van Pelt with the National Weather Service. “Areas in Southwest Bexar County got about 1” to 1.5 inches.”

She predicts more showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday ahead of the cold front, which is scheduled to arrive in the evening.

“Then we’ll have even more widespread showers and thunderstorms with some locally heavy rain,” said Van Pelt.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 pm Thursday.

“Once that cooler air settles in, our high for tomorrow is only about 75 degrees,” said Van Pelt.

She expects that cold front will dissolve over the area and push temperatures into the mid 80s on Friday and back into the 90s on Saturday.
