SAN ANTONIOTHE LATEST: After flash flooding early Saturday afternoon, all flash flood-related watches and warnings have been allowed to expire as of Saturday evening.

Throughout Saturday, an area of low pressure has been slowly moving east across Texas. This contributed to the flooding rain we saw Friday night and on Saturday afternoon. As the rain comes to an end and the weekend rolls on, here’s what you need to know:

  • By Saturday evening, rain will begin to wind down - although, a few lingering showers will be possible
  • Showers & storms will come to an end completely a few hours before dawn on Sunday morning
