(ORIGINAL STORY)

Severe storms with a potential for hail are possible overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, KSAT Meteorologists say.

Isolated storms are possible Tuesday afternoon and evening, mainly west of San Antonio across the Hill Country and Edwards Plateau. Hail and gusty winds may accompany these storms. An isolated tornado also cannot be ruled out.

The threat of severe weather for San Antonio emerges between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Gusty winds and a small threat of hail will be the main risks with this line.

KSAT Meteorologist Justin Horne, Digital Journalist Adrian Garcia and Photojournalist Todd Stricker will be in the new KSAT Storm Chaser, livestreaming the action as they're on the hunt for severe weather activity on the KSAT app on your phone and on KSAT's Facebook page.
