UPDATE: KSAT 12 meteorologist Justin Horne says so far Tuesday morning San Antonio has only seen cloud cover and drizzle.

Heavy rain however continues to fall South and East of town, with estimates of up to 5 inches, Horne said.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7 p.m. Wednesday for DeWitt, Karnes, and Lavaca County with the heavy rain slowly moving Northwest.

Today will be a case of the "haves and have nots", Horne said. Low amounts of rain can be expected west of San Antonio, but southeast of town, heavy rain will continue. San Antonio will be on the dividing line, with a few heavier downpours possible later today.

KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage says heavy rain has been falling on the coastal plain early Tuesday morning.

The showers and storms will then continue to move Northwest into the greater San Antonio area. Rain is expected throughout much of the day, Osterhage said. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

There will be more rain tomorrow, and then it will taper off for the end of the week, Osterhage said.

The National Weather Service says a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Karnes, DeWitt, and Lavaca County until Wednesday evening. 4-6 inches of rain with isolated higher amounts are expected in the area which could lead to flooding. A Flash Flood Watch also has been issued for Bee, Live Oak, and Victoria counties.
