SAN ANTONIO — For the first time in almost two weeks, San Antonio's high temperature did not reach 100 degrees. But it is hot and humid.

We will get a bit of relief for the rest of the week with highs only being in the mid to upper 90s. 

We will finally start to see some better rain chances return to the forecast as well as we move into the end of the week and into the weekend. 

The long-term forecast also hints at better rain chances returning for our region.

The upper high will keep the heatwave going over the next several days, but the ridge should weaken by the weekend. 

As the ridge weakens, scattered rain should develop. The Aquifer continues to drop about a half a foot each day, and it could drop below 660” by the first week of September. 

No tropical activity has occurred in the Atlantic basin since July 15. It has been 37 years since there was zero tropical activity from July 15 thru Aug 20th.

Today: AM clouds then partly cloudy. High 100°

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low 78°

Tomorrow: AM clouds then mostly sunny, High 99°
