SAN ANTONIO - UPDATE: It's not that we haven't seen fronts like this before, it's just rarely do they come this early in the season, KSAT 12 meteorologist Justin Horne said. It's like skipping Fall and going straight to Winter.

At any rate, we're some 30° cooler this morning than we were 24 hours ago. Winds chills are now in the low 40s in SA, Horne said.

The National Weather Service said moderate to localized showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to affect most areas along and east of Highway 281 for the rest of this morning.


UPDATE: Bundle up and take your rain gear this morning. Temperatures are in the mid 50s to mid 40s, with winds gusts up to 35 mph, and it's raining hard, KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage said.

A flood advisory is in effect for Bexar, Atascosa, and Wilson counties until 7:45 a.m. More than 1.5" has fallen in less than 1 hour, Osterhage said.

The National Weather Service said moderate to localized heavy rain continues to affect areas along and east of I-35. This activity is expected to continue for the next several hours.

Showers and storms are moving along and behind the cold front with heavy rain located out west, KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage said.

There is a flood advisory in effect until 6:30 a.m. for Edwards and Real counties. A flash flood watch is in effect for the Hill Country through Monday evening. It will be wet and cold the rest of the week, Osterhage said.

Temperatures are dropping 15°-20° with blustery winds and rain. We'll be in the upper 40's later today with more rain. 

The National Weather Service said moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms are moving northward into the San Antonio metro area.
