NWS: Another storm system moving into Bexar County

September 5, 2018

An evening wave of showers is headed into Bexar County that could bring an inch of rain per hour in some areas, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service is monitoring another group of showers going north through Wilson and Atascosa counties.

NWS meteorologist Eric Platt said much of the activity currently appears to be moving toward Floresville and up to La Vernia.

He noted that the storm system is showing a weakening trend in the middle, meaning that some of the activity may not make it to downtown San Antonio.

The weather service warns that frequent lightning strikes can be expected to accompany the storms.

Meteorologists are also watching weather patterns that may produce rain around the Schertz area later this evening.

“We’re under a similar atmosphere that we were in yesterday where there’s quite a bit of moisture in the air,” Platt said. “Any of these things can produce quite a heavy rainfall.”

Less than an inch of rain has been recorded in San Antonio as of Tuesday afternoon, while Monday saw 6.07 inches of rain, breaking the rainfall record of 1.76 inches for Sept. 3 from 1889, according to NWS records.
