It's going to be a wet week for the San Antonio area. Cory Van Pelt with the National Weather Service says we’re getting a bit of a break today.

“But that’s going to change tomorrow, especially tomorrow night when it looks like we’ll have a line of strong, possibly severe thunderstorms that come through. We could also have some more heavy rain with those. And then the rest of the week we’re just going to have off and on rain," Van Pelt said.

Tuesday's high is expected to be near 85. Rain is expected to continue throughout the week. Van Pelt says this is being caused by an upper level low pressure system coming from the west

“Areas generally have gotten 2- to 3-inches, some spots a little bit less. It’s possible to get another two to three inches. Some places are likely to get a bit more than that.”

According to the weather service's severe weather outlook for the week, rainfall totals could exceed 4- to 5-inches. With soil across South Central Texas becoming saturated, flash-flooding and river flooding could become threats on Thursday and Friday.
