SAN ANTONIO — The official high in San Antonio Tuesday afternoon was 100 degrees, breaking a 19-year-old record of 97 as this scorcher of a May continues.
It'll be the same story Wednesday as skies clear to partly cloudy conditions, with highs climbing to near-record levels in the upper-90s. The record for May 18 is 98 degrees, from 2018.
Slight rain chances will return to the forecast Friday, and will stay there at about 20% to 30% through the start of next week. We're hoping to get an inch to an inch and a quarter of rain out of those weekend showers.
