BEXAR COUNTY (KTSA News) — Severe weather could be making a visit to the greater San Antonio and Austin areas Friday afternoon.
The National Weather Service said an area from Rocksprings and Uvalde to the north and east — including San Antonio, Austin, New Braunfels, and Kerrville — are at a higher risk for seeing severe storms. This area is under a “slight” risk, a two on its five level severity likelihood scale.
The biggest risk from this system is the potential of hail of up to two inches in diameter — roughly egg-sized.
The Interstate 35 corridor should expect to see between 1/4 to 1/2 inches of rain, with higher amounts closer to Austin. Areas further east, like LaGrange, could an inch of rain. Flooding from these storms is not expected.
Wind gusts could reach and exceed 60 miles per hours and an isolated tornado is possible, but not likely.
