Rain just continues to fall and Sunday morning, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day will be no different, according to the National Weather Service. Although the area may be on what looks to be the tail end of storms, it doesn’t mean we are completely out of the woods yet.

The San Antonio area is looking to be gloomy for a bit during St. Patrick’s Day, and if you’re out and about for the festivities, it may be best to choose to take all things green indoors. The NWS says isolated strong to severe storms will be possible, mainly through the morning hours Sunday across the southeastern parts of the area.

And has been the case since reports on Friday, the NWS said there’s still chance for large hail and damaging straight line winds in the forecast. Isolated rainfall amounts may reach up to two inches, the NWS added.

However this is some good news, as it may be partly sunny in some areas, with highs up to the early 70s. Wind can get up to 20 mph, but is more likely to stay between 10-15 mph. This may be the last time we see rain until Wednesday, March 20, when the area has a 20% chance of rain.

Rainfall totals across the area did settle between half an inch to 2 inches in some areas on early Sunday morning, according to the NWS.
