SAN ANTONIO – KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage says to expect a wet morning commute and more showers on Wednesday.

The storm that dumped the heavy rain and large hail has moved out, Osterhage said, but more showers and a few storms will continue to move through this morning.

Eventually there will be some clearing West, with leftover showers moving east. The high today will be 75°.

It will be partly cloudy the next couple of days Osterhage said, then the showers and storms return this weekend.

Flooding should also be expected in low water crossing spots.

The National Weather Service says patchy light rain will continue over portions of south-central Texas, with additional rainfall amounts of less than 1/4 of an inch through 5 a.m.
