SAN ANTONIO – Hurricane Hanna made landfall on Padre Island, Texas at 5 PM Saturday. As of 4 PM Sunday, Hanna continues to weaken and is now a Tropical Depression. The storm is moving west-southwest at 9 mph over Mexico with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. The storm is expected to linger over Mexico Monday, before falling apart even more and becoming a post tropical cyclone. In the meantime, Hanna continues to produce flooding rains across deep South Texas.

Although the most extreme impacts from Hanna will be felt in and around the Rio Grande Valley, Hanna is still expected to toss some scattered, tropical downpours to San Antonio and surrounding areas through the end of the weekend.

How Much Rain?

Rainfall totals through the weekend will be higher well south of San Antonio in deep South Texas, where the center of Hurricane Hanna made landfall. Places like Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley could see 4-8 inches of rain through Sunday, with flash flooding possible. Meanwhile, in San Antonio, passing downpours will likely result in around 1 inch of rain or less by the end of the day Monday.
