Beneficial rain headed to San Antonio this week

Good news is on the horizon as rain chances increase for the Alamo City.

SAN ANTONIO — San Antonians can finally grab their umbrellas! Beneficial rain is expected to dampen the area with shower and thunderstorm chances set to increase through the weekend. 

This much-needed rain will also keep triple-digit temperatures from returning as a boundary starts pushing toward San Antonio Friday.  But residents don't have to wait until this weekend for rain; shower activity may begin as early as Wednesday evening. 

Here's what to expect over the next seven days

This week - As high pressure loosens its grip over Texas, a stalled boundary will create favorable conditions for some shower activity possible late Wednesday afternoon. 

We're not expecting anything widespread Wednesday night, but another chance of rain arrives Thursday morning around 6 a.m., according to one weather model. So make sure to pack your umbrellas before you head out the door.

This weekend - Heavy showers and thunderstorms could put a damper on Friday night football as a boundary pushes through the San Antonio area Friday evening through Saturday morning.  This system could also produce heavy amounts of rain in some isolated areas. 

Over the next seven days, rainfall totals could reach over an inch in San Antonio while nearing two inches in northern parts of Bexar County. 

The rain will wrap up Sunday morning, and Monday and Tuesday of next week will bring back the sunny, clear skies.
