Active weather pattern ahead for South Texas during Memorial Day weekend


As more of us venture outside this Memorial Day weekend, you’ll want to stay up-to-date with the forecast. Chances of rain will increase this weekend and into next week as an area of low pressure drifts around South Texas. With this kind of pattern, it is hard to pinpoint exactly when and where rain will occur, but here are some of the main takeaways:

  • Storms that have developed near the Rio Grande Saturday afternoon could approach San Antonio around 10 PM Saturday night; these storms could have strong winds and some hail as they arrive in the Alamo City.
  • Storms are possible again Sunday evening, and are expected to approach from the west.
  • While widespread severe weather is not anticipated, a few strong to severe storms are possible at times over the weekend, especially if a line of storms develops.
  • It will not rain ALL weekend, but you’ll want to be prepared for when storms do pop up.
  • Flooding may become a concern should heavy rain concentrate over one area. Storms that develop will be slow-movers.
  • Storm chances continue into next week, as an area of low pressure drifts around South Texas.
