After a nice weekend, it’s time to prepare for our first severe weather chance of the spring. A dynamic storm system will sweep across Texas Monday, bringing with it a widespread chance of severe weather - including around San Antonio.

Here’s what you need to know:

MONDAY

  • After a lull in showers & storms through early afternoon, scattered storms will redevelop between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Some of these storms will become severe, especially east of Highway 281
    • All types of severe weather will be possible -- hail, damaging wind gusts and there is even a possibility of a tornado
The highest risk for any storms that become severe will be large hail. An isolated tornado and damaging wind gusts are possible as well (Copyright 2022 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)
  • Rain chances end for everyone late Monday night and it will be sunny Tuesday.

WATCH VS. WARNING

A watch is often issued before a warning. A watch means that we're monitoring for the possibility of severe weather. A warning means that severe weather is happening and you should take action immediately! (Copyright 2022 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)

With the likelihood of severe weather watches and warnings Monday, it’s important to remember the difference between a WATCH and a WARNING:

  • A WATCH means that we’re monitoring the weather as severe weather is possible.
  • A WARNING means that severe weather is happening and you should TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY.
