Due to saturated soil from recent rainfall in Bexar County, the NWS predicts Wednesday’s showers could cause minor flooding of low water crossings and elevated flows along creeks and streams.

“As the rainfall from Wednesday drains into local creeks and streams elevated water levels in these drainage areas could continue to be a hazard for the morning commute on Thursday,” reads a statement from the NWS.

The Hill Country and Edwards Plateau face the possibility of light freezing rain Wednesday and Thursday morning. Ice accumulations are expected to be light.
