SAN ANTONIO -- The Guadalupe and Comal rivers were receding from dangerously high levels early Thursday afternoon after strong storms dumped rain on south Texas overnight and into the early morning. The weather is expected to improve throughout the afternoon in time for trick-or-treaters.

Heavy rain trained across south Texas Wednesday night and Thursday morning, causing dangerous flooding conditions in some areas, KENS 5 meteorologist Paul Mireles said.

A flood warning was in effect for the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers until Thursday evening or until the warning is canceled, according to the National Weather Service. 

Between 30 and 40 RVs were evacuated as 15 feet of water rushed through the River Ranch RV Resort in New Braunfels overnight.

The Wimberley ISD and San Marcos Consolidated ISD canceled classes Thursday due to the weather conditions. The New Braunfels ISD had a two-hour delay before starting classes. 

The storm system was expected to clear east of San Antonio by mid-afternoon Thursday. Halloween will be nice for the trick-or-treaters -- partly cloudy with temperatures in the 70s.
