SAN ANTONIO - Rain is covering most of the area this morning and the showers and storms will continue throughout the day on Tuesday, KSAT 12 Meteorologist Mike Osterhage said. 

A flash flood watch is in effect for the western half of our area through Thursday night.

The National Weather Service says mostly light rain is being reported from San Antonio to Eagle Pass. Some heavier showers will eventually occur. The major rain is set to continue for the next few hours, the NWS said.

The NWS said rainfall amounts of three to six inches are possible with isolated totals of 10 inches across the Rio Grande Plains and Southern Edwards Plateau.

Areas of the Hill Country and I-35 Corridor could see one to four inches with lesser amounts farther east.
