Rain heads east, forecast is sun later with highs in upper 70s
7 a.m. UPDATE: The rain moving through the metropolitan area is mostly light, but there are a few moderate to heavy downpours in others areas, KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage said.
A few storms are also possible, but the severe threat is north of us. Sunny today with highs in the upper 70s, Osterhage said.
4:30 a.m UPDATE: The showers and storms Wednesday morning are moving east at a pretty good clip, KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage said.
Osterhage said the severe threat is trending north of our area as the southern end of the rain line is becoming disorganized.
It will be windy & cooler right behind the front, and then sunny and 78° on Wednesday. It will be cooler this weekend.
The National Weather Service says that while the southern part of the line has weakened it could still produce winds of 40-50mph as it approaches Uvalde, Kerrville, and Garner State Park. Lighting and brief heavy rain will also be possible.
Tonight will be drizzly and damp for most, but a line of storms in West Texas is setting the stage for some thunderstorms overnight and early Wednesday morning. In typical spring fashion, some of these storms could be strong.
As for timing, areas along the border will see the line of storms first, likely just after midnight. The Hill Country is next in line, seeing a possibility of storms from 3am until 6am. San Antonio and the I-35 corridor should see storms arriving between 6 and 10 am.
After the front, sunshine will return and humidity will take a nice drop Wednesday through next weekend.
Temperatures will be a bit cool, especially during the morning hours Friday through Sunday.
