Cooling off slightly as rain chances return | FORECAST

There will be a 30 percent chance for showers and storms, mainly in our southern and eastern counties Saturday afternoon and evening.

SAN ANTONIO — Isolated showers will dissipate this evening with temperatures cooling off into the 70s overnight.

The weather pattern will be rinse and repeat through Tuesday. A mix of clouds and sunshine, spotty showers in the afternoon, and highs in the upper-90s.

The pattern begins to change mid-week.

A weak upper-level disturbance will drop farther south into Texas between Wednesday and Friday producing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.

Forecast models suggest a few pockets of heavy rain on Thursday. This would be perfect! Considering yearly rainfall totals and current drought.

While it won't be drought busting rain, rainfall totals will be upwards of 1" across South Texas and San Antonio. Higher totals southeast along the Texas coast.

Rain chances will trend down into the weekend.

Increasing clouds and rain will keep our temperatures down below 100 degrees. This will be nice to see!

Depending on how much rain between Wednesday and Friday, highs may be 93-95 in the afternoons. 

This would make it the "coolest" we've been all summer. Let's hope for some good rain!

Here are some tips for the summer provided by the National Weather Service:

  • Drink plenty of water. 
  • Take frequent breaks from the sun if you plan to be outside, and check up on relatives and neighbors. 
  • Limit strenuous activity to the early morning or evening hours. 
  • Don't leave young children or pets alone in cars.
