It may be a few weeks late, but the fall-like conditions have finally arrived in San Antonio.
SAN ANTONIO — It was a warm and humid start to fall, which officially began more than two weeks ago, but the cooler weather has finally arrived.
Overnight and into the morning hours, a cold front moved through South Texas, bringing with it much cooler and drier conditions after we had a few showers pass through early this morning.
For Monday, temperatures are only expected to rise into the lower 80s, more than 10 degrees cooler than what our temperatures rose to on Sunday afternoon. As of 11:30 a.m. on Monday, temperatures were trending 13 degrees cooler for San Antonio than 24-hours earlier and dew points were much lower as well.
Our temperatures are expected to stay in the 50s to 60s for lows and 80s for highs for the next couple of days, but don’t put away the warm weather clothes just yet. By the time we get to Thursday, we will have a bit of a warm-up with temperatures rising to near 90s degrees for the afternoon, ahead of our next cold front.
The next cold front, which arrives Friday morning, looks to bring even cooler conditions than what we have on Monday. Expect temperatures to fall to the 40s in the Hill Country for lows and 50s for the lows in San Antonio for Friday into the weekend. High temperatures will be in the 70s for Friday into the weekend.
The downside to the cold fronts is that they bring a lot of dry air behind them and they aren’t going to have much rain associated with them either. This will not be helpful for our drought conditions and burn bans currently in place.
Areas of extreme drought will likely grow over the next two weeks due to the lack of rainfall expected.
