(June 30, 2010)--As Hurricane Alex makes landfall Wednesday, more moisture will push onshore and move into South Central Texas. Scattered showers and thunderstorms were predicted through Wednesday ahead of Alex. Because no major impact is anticipated in the San Antonio area, UTSA will be open and operating as usual.

Three to four inches of rain are possible for South Central Texas with the potential for locally heavy rain and some isolated flash flooding of streets and small creeks. Some areas of South Texas could receive six inches or more over the next several days.

Breezy conditions of 15-30 miles per hour may occur south of a line from Del Rio to San Antonio to Cuero. The strongest winds of 20-30 miles per hour likely were predicted to occur Wednesday night with some slightly higher gusts. The storm was predicted to make landfall early Thursday and the threat of heavy rainfall could continue through Friday.

Any weather updates will be posted on UTSA Today.
