FIRST ALERT: Storms dump heavy rain in Frio Co., threaten South Texas

Saturday evening forecast 5-20-17

SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio area could see strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday into Sunday morning according to the National Weather Service.

Most of the severe weather on Saturday was concentrated just south of Bexar County.


According to KENS 5 Meteorologist Jared Silverman, we've lost what little daytime heating we had today. The severe threat goes away overnight, but on Sunday afternoon and into the night, there will be another round of storms with the two primary threats being hail and damaging winds.

There will be a slightly better chance of seeing flooding, but since San Antonio missed out on a lot of the rain on Saturday, flooding chances are significantly less than originally thought.

There is still a chance of spot storms in the San Antonio area until midnight, so take an umbrella out just in case.

Earlier Saturday, the Frio County Weather Center reported nickel-sized hail with 40 miles per hour winds and frequent lightning.


The NWS said a 'weak' cold front should move into the San Antonio area overnight into Sunday morning.

Another round of storms is expected to last Sunday through Tuesday.
