SAN ANTONIO — A few clouds will linger after sunset then it will be mostly clear Sunday night, with lows in the upper-60s-to-low-70s.
Here’s the good news: A lot of us in San Antonio will see rain over the next seven days thanks to a disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico. Afternoon isolated (20%) showers and a few thunderstorms are possible Monday. It will stay hot with a high of 95 degrees and a heat index of 98 degrees under a partly sunny sky.
We will keep a 20% chance of rain Tuesday until rain coverage really rises Wednesday (50%) and Thursday (60%). Bexar and surrounding counties is expected to receive one to three inches of rain through Sunday. Higher rainfall amounts of up to five inches are possible over eastern counties, closer to Victoria.
As of right now, the severe weather threat is low this week, but minor flooding is possible in flood-prone areas.
