Overnight storms drop heavy rain on SA area
Cold front, thunderstorms, a precursor to heavy winds Tuesday
SAN ANTONIO – A cold front is making its way through South Texas early Tuesday morning and bringing heavy rains and thunderstorms with it.

Mike says it will be very windy today, and a wind advisory takes place from noon until midnight. It will be cooler the next few days.
High winds and hail have also been reported across South Texas. Viewers have sent in pictures showing hail covering yards. Winds gusts as high as 60 mph have been reported at Laughlin AFB.
