Snow expected in San Antonio Thursday night
We aren’t in the clear San Antonio. For the most part we’ve seen rain throughout this storm event, with just a few snowflakes being seen early this morning mixed in with the rain outside of the KENS5 studios. So far, all of the snow action has been in the Hill Country, and our western and southwestern counties. This evening, that may change.
Two of our more reliable computer models are in agreement about a final burst of energy on the backside of the trough of low pressure responsible for the mixed bag of precipitation, will push through just as the coldest is settling in this evening. As long as the cold air arrives before the moisture moves out, we’ll end up with a dusting to an inch of snow in and around San Antonio. Not everywhere would see accumulating snowfall, but most of south Texas has a shot. Areas further south could even see a few inches of snow.
The timeframe for the possible light snow, would be between 4pm and midnight. The models do differ on the timing, with one on the earlier side beginning near the evening rush and ending by 8pm. The other beginning around 7pm, and ending by midnight. That is for San Antonio. Further south, the timeframe would be pushed back a few more hours.
Keep those fingers crossed San Antonio…an early taste of winter may still be on the way!
