San Antonians may want to park their cars in the garage Friday night as severe storms are expected to roll in. That’s what forecasters at the National Weather Service are saying in their latest announcement on social media.
Right now San Antonio is at slight risk to see severe weather in the city. The biggest threat folks are likely to see is large hail, but forecasters also say damaging winds and a tornado across southeastern areas may be possible.

On top of the risk of hail, forecasters say locally heavy rain is also expected across most of central and eastern portions of the region. Drivers may encounter minor flooding as well, especially in saturated areas from last week’s rain.
San Antonio is likely to see rain totals from half an inch to an inch of rain, NWS says. Further up towards Austin, folks are likely to see up to an inch and a half of rain.
Remember “turn around don’t drown” as you drive near flood prone areas across San Antonio. Last week’s record rainfall closed several roads and led to folks being swept away in flood water.
