Flash flooding possible as storms move into South Central Texas

Flash flood watch in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday


SAN ANTONIO - Another round of severe weather is expected to make its way to South Central Texas Wednesday, only days after heavy showers and storms hit the San Antonio area.


The National Weather Service predicts a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day Wednesday, and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 1 a.m. Thursday.

The threat of heavy downpours has prompted a flash flood watch from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday for the following counties:

Atascosa, Bandera, Bastrop, Bexar, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, Dewitt, Fayette, Frio, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Karnes, Kendall, LaVaca, Lee, Medina, Travis, Williamson and Wilson.

KSAT Weather Authority Meteorologist Mike Osterhage says the ground is saturated so flooding is a threat.

Mike says there is a slight risk that these showers could turn severe with hail and high winds being the biggest threat.  

Wednesday's high in San Antonio expected to be in the mid 80's with a low around 74.
