Threat of hail, strong winds and thunderstorms return for San Antonio tonight

Spring weather is here and that means chances of severe weather will continue for the San Antonio area. Our next chance to see thunderstorm activity and possible severe weather is late Wednesday night through early Thursday morning.

This chance of severe weather is due to increasing moisture and a cold front that will move through our area bringing a line of thunderstorms stretching as far north as Dallas, Texas.

An isolated shower and thunderstorm is also possible for San Antonio on Wednesday afternoon during the warmest hours as temperatures rise to the mid 70s. However, if skies start to clear, temperatures could reach as high as 80 degrees.

The cold front will begin to approach San Antonio around 10 p.m. with showers and thunderstorms becoming more active near the Hill Country. Currently the more severe weather looks to be favorable for the Hill Country with frequent lightning, isolated storms producing large hail and wind gusts around 60 mph.

Thunderstorm development for San Antonio could occur around the same time as earlier this week with storms firing up around 1 a.m. as they did Tuesday morning. Some isolated storms could become more severe from this system with hail and damaging wind gusts for San Antonio. The chances of another tornado are low as of right now.

The northern portion of Bexar County is currently under a marginal risk level of severe weather for late tonight through early Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
