To put it bluntly, the forecast for Mother’s Day weekend is complicated.
High energy will enable heavy rainfall in south-central Texas, but the timing and exact location of heavy rainfall is difficult to determine due to weather conditions.
RESULT: check radar and forecast daily on KSAT 12, on the KSAT Weather Authority app, and on the KSAT weather page. We will also update this article frequently. Here is the forecast:
Monday evening (5/8) and Tuesday (5/9)
We’ll be expecting storms west of San Antonio on Monday night.
These storms could reach San Antonio on Monday night to Tuesday. Several severe storms are possible, and pockets of heavy rains can lead to localized flooding.
A higher chance of rain will continue Tuesday and gradually move east of I-35.
Wednesday (10.05) and Thursday (11.05)
Less rain on Wednesday and Thursday, but there is still a chance of occasional daytime storms.
Friday night and Mother’s Day weekend (12.05 – 14.05)
Heavy rain will hit south-central Texas intermittently starting Friday night and continuing through Sunday, Mother’s Day.
This is when the risk of flooding is highest.
When all is said and done, 3 inches of rain is likely to fall around San Antonio, but there will be pockets of even more rain – potentially over 7 inches in places.
As the widespread drought continues, this week and weekend may finally bring some relief in the fight against the drought. However, the risk of flooding will be high. Please check your radar before driving this week/weekend and follow the flood safety rules: TURN DON’T DROWN!
While the risk of flooding far outweighs the risk of hail, the likelihood of any developing storms being accompanied by gusty winds and block-sized hail is still low.
