Rain gradually comes to an end Tuesday evening as the remnants of Harold move west

Rainfall totals around the San Antonio area generally amounted to 0.25″ - 0.75″ following Tuesday’s rain

We'll gradually dry things out Tuesday evening as the remnants of Harold move west.

Tropical Storm Harold made landfall over Padre Island, Texas around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, bringing gusty winds and needed rainfall to parts of South Central Texas. As the remnants of Harold continue to work westward, the rain will gradually come to an end from east to west Tuesday evening.

Key Points

  • Tropical Storm Harold made landfall over Padre Island Tuesday morning, bringing winds of 40-50 mph, with gusts up to 65 mph along the immediate coast of Texas.
  • The heaviest and more widespread rain fell south of San Antonio, but totals in the 0.25″ - 0.75″ range were recorded closer to town.
  • What’s left of the rain activity will continue to move west Tuesday evening, and we’ll gradually start to dry out from east to west with just an isolated shower leftover Tuesday night.
  • After only climbing into the low 90s Tuesday afternoon in San Antonio before the rain moved in, upper 90s return Wednesday afternoon followed by more triple digits late this week.
