Multiple rounds of rain likely for San Antonio, Hill Country starting Tuesday afternoon

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A cold front heading in from the west is expected to bring close to an inch of rain to the area with heavier amounts falling along the I-35 corridor.

Showers could start as early as Tuesday afternoon and that trend should continue through Wednesday morning.

“There is a marginal threat for a strong to severe storm or two mainly in areas east of I-35, so not including San Antonio,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Brandon Gale. “We could see some stronger wind gusts and maybe an isolated tornado with any storms that develop across that area.”

No serious flooding is expected with rain totals of anywhere from half an inch to one inch expected in the San Antonio area and parts of the Hill Country.

However, there will be enough rain to cause puddling on some low lying roads and parking lots, so allowing some extra time to get to work Wednesday morning is advised.

In the event you do come across a road or street completely covered with water, it is best to turn around, don’t drown.
