A rainy Sunday resulted in serious flooding issues west of San Antonio, and more rain is in store for Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Flash flood watches in multiple counties west of Bexar, including Uvalde and Edwards, were extended into Tuesday morning.

In Concan, Texas Game Wardens received several flooding calls, according to a Facebook post.

“At this time there are reports of a number of RVs swept away in the quickly rising waters,” the game wardens wrote in the post.

Further north, first responders were kept busy with multiple water rescue calls in Junction, where the Llano River is flooding. Numerous roads and low water crossings in the town were flooded after a canyon collecting water overflowed into the river.

The rain isn’t through yet, either.

Meteorologist Brett Williams said up to 4 inches of rain are expected in the counties west of San Antonio, which is problematic due to oversaturation of rain still in the area.

The storm system, which Williams said was “pretty potent,” will eventually move east into San Antonio. The Alamo City should see rain this afternoon through tonight.

A weak cold front is expected to push the moisture out later this week, and bring the high temperatures down to the 80s starting around Wednesday, Williams said.
