  • Beta will continue to move very slowly, which will likely result in prolonged periods of heavy rain for some areas, especially in and around the Houston area

Impacts for the San Antonio Area

  • Overall, the most rain will fall well east of the I-35 corridor this week, so flooding is not a concern for San Antonio & Bexar County
  • However, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued through Tuesday for places like Hallettsville, Cuero, and Goliad
  • Those easternmost communities could see rainfall totals in the 3-6″ range
  • In contrast, the San Antonio/Bexar County area is expected to see around 1 inch of rain through midweek
