SAN ANTONIO - Get in the know, San Antonio. Here are the stories that impact you and some you’ll be talking about at the water cooler this week.

A whole new world

Just in time for Saturday's high temperatures and the upcoming first day of summer, Morgan’s Wonderland opened its newest addition. After nearly two years of construction, the first ultra-accessible water park opened up within the theme park. Highlights include a seven-story lighthouse and five play areas. Everything is wheelchair-accessible.


A Texas dad is getting a lot of attention from a video of what he calls "a typical Saturday night." Robert Douglas posted to Facebook a video of him and his son grooving to the Bruno Mars song "24 Carat Magic" earlier this month, and the internet loved it. Of course, a big shout to all the dads and father figures out there. We hope you had a nice day celebrating all y’all do.

Storm’s a-brewin’

The National Hurricane Center is keeping a close eye on a disturbance in the Caribbean Sea that will travel slowly into the Gulf of Mexico early this week. The NHC said the disturbance has a 90 percent chance of developing into a named tropical system. Current observations and satellite data have indicated that a broad low pressure area is centered near the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. But, as of Sunday night, the system is not expected to have an impact on the weather in San Antonio.
