Another line of thunderstorms packing heavy rain, hail, and gusty winds pushed across South Central Texas, including San Antonio, on Sunday night.

A tornado warning was issued for Medina and Northwest Bexar County until 8:30 p.m.

Severe thunderstorm watches and warnings and flash flood watches and warnings were posted for some areas of the region after a previous rain on Saturday night had already left the ground saturated.

Flash flood warnings were placed in effect for Real, Uvalde, Bandera and Medina Counties to the west of San Antonio after rain up to three inches fell on some spots.

Meteorologist Eric Platt of the National Weather Service in New Braunfels saw forecast models earlier in the day.

“We’re expecting a complex of thunderstorms to be moving in from the west, and so the main concern we’re looking at is the possibility of some large hail, damaging winds with this line of thunderstorms and also some heavy rainfall,.” he said.

Hail the size of ping pong balls and 60-mile an hour winds were reported around Carrizo Springs in Dimmit County.

Half dollar-sized hail was reported northwest of Dilley in Frio County.
