FIRST ALERT: Scattered storms roll into San Antonio with heavy rain

KENS 5 Meteorologist Jared Silverman gives us the latest in San Antonio weather updates.

SAN ANTONIO – Scattered showers and storms are possible for the San Antonio area starting Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS tweeted around 1:45 p.m. that the scattered storms late Monday afternoon will produce locally heavy rainfall. A few storms could be severe, with strong winds and hail being the primary threat.

KENS 5 Meteorologist Jared Silverman says strong to severe thunderstorms are possible again this afternoon and tonight, mainly before midnight. The best chance for storms will be late in the day/evening, along and east of US-281.

The two primary threats for severe weather will be hail, greater than 1-inch diameter, and strong winds, gusting up to 60 mph. These storms will move through quickly so flooding is not a primary concern at this time.

Silverman is monitoring an area of scattered storms coming southward from the Austin area. The evening commute could be wet, use caution. Tonight looks to be the last chance for wet weather across the area for the next five to seven days.

Monday, the weather is expected to clear.

You can expect 90-degree temperatures throughout the rest of the week.
