Labor Day picnics in San Antonio could be doused with afternoon thunderstorms, but it will only be a prelude to the heavy rainfall expected midweek, forecasters said Sunday.

Monday's 20 percent chance of showers after 4 p.m. might not deliver much moisture, but on Tuesday there's a 70 percent chance of heavy rain, followed by a 60 percent chance of heavy rain Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service. Wednesday holds a 50 percent chance of showers, forecasters said.
