National Weather Service predicts heavy rain, potential flash flooding for the region

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Get ready to get wet.

The National Weather Service has sent out a Flash Flood Watch for today through Thursday.

The prediction is for isolated heavy downpours which could bring minor flooding to the region.

The rain will come from the remnants of Hurricane Pamela when the storm makes its way across Texas.

The primary risk for heavy rain on Tuesday will be to the North of San Antonio and extend east to La Grange.

The Flash Flood Watch begins late Tuesday night as the threat of heavier rain increases ahead of the storm that is currently Hurricane Pamela.

Once that system crosses South Central Texas, it will be absorbed into an upper level storm system. That will extend the heavy rain and flash flooding into late Wednesday and Thursday.

The Weather Service is predicting the heaviest rain to fall across the Hill Country, Southern Edwards Plateau and down to the Rio Grande. There is a good chance it will extend East to the I-35 corridor.

In San Antonio, the potential amount of rain is up to 2 inches.

Areas to the West and North are preparing for rainfall amounts of up to 4 inches.
