Heavy rain possible at times this week around San Antonio – especially over Mother’s Day Weekend

To put it bluntly, the forecast through Mother’s Day weekend is complicated.

Upper-level energy will bring the chance for times of heavy rain to South Central Texas, but the timing and exact location of heavy rain is difficult because of the weather pattern.

BOTTOM LINE: Check the radar and the forecast daily on KSAT 12, the KSAT Weather Authority App, and on the KSAT Weather page. We’ll also update this article frequently. Here’s where the forecast stands:

Rainfall Potential

Total rainfall potential for South Central Texas from May 9 through Mother’s Day Weekend (Copyright 2023 by KSAT – All rights reserved.)
  • When all is said and done, widespread 3 inches of rain is likely around San Antonio, but there will be pockets of even more rain — potentially more than 7 inches in places.
  • With widespread drought still in place, this week and weekend could finally provide some drought-busting relief. However, the flood risk will be high. Please check the radar before you drive this week/weekend and practice flooding safety: TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!

Any Hail?

  • While the flooding risk far outweighs the risk for hail, there is still a low chance that any storms that develop will contain gusty winds and hail the size of quarters.
