Severe storms to impact San Antonio Monday afternoon

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — After a beautiful ending to spring break, here comes one of those notorious Texas spring storms.

The National Weather Service is predicting a rough afternoon and evening with the possibility of thunder, lightning, heavy rain, hail and maybe even tornadoes.

The storm front will start impacting the area at 1 P.M. Monday and could make the afternoon rush hour even more chaotic.

Storms are expected to develop near or just West of US-Highway 281 and increase in intensity as they make their way East.

Some areas could experience up to 2 inches of rain but conditions are extremely dry which could help reduce the risk of flooding.

There is also the possibility of hail up to 2 inches in diameter. The Weather Service says the greatest risk for hail will be along and east of Highway 281.

You could also experience frequent lightning strikes and damaging winds in excess of 60 miles per hour.

Strong EF 2 tornadoes can’t be ruled out as the storms roar through the region.

The storms are expected to move out of the area by 9 P.M.
