Rain chances will increase tonight for the Rio Grande and the Hill Country. In fact, some of our western counties are under a level 1 marginal risk. This means isolated severe thunderstorms are possible late afternoon into tonight. 

Primary threats will be hail and strong wind gusts.

We will keep higher rain chances west of San Antonio this evening. A few isolated showers may move into Bexar County after midnight when most of us are asleep. There will be a strong cap in place, which is why rain chances are remaining pretty slim for South Texas.
