No trick: Cooler weather arrives for Halloween

Heavy rain early Friday leads to high water rescue; Temperatures expected to be in lower 60s by Friday evening


SAN ANTONIO – Heavy rain and lightning moved through the San Antonio area early Friday morning ahead of a cold front that was expected to drop temperatures into the 60s.

The rain was predicted to push south and west of San Antonio during the morning hours and end along the border by midday Friday.

A flood advisory was issued for Bexar County early Friday morning, but expired by 6 a.m.

The storms led to at least two high water rescues. Rescue officials said two people were swept away and later pulled from high water on the near North Side.

SAFD officials were searching for another person in the area early Friday morning.

KSAT Weather Authority Meteorologist Mike Osterhage said 1 to 2 inches of rain was expected to fall in the area during the early morning hours.

Cooler temperatures for Halloween

KSAT Weather Authority Meteorologist Katie Vossler says cooler temperatures are expected to spread throughout the area by Friday afternoon and last into the weekend.

The cooler air will filter in behind the front along with breezy northeasterly winds. Expect clearing skies and temperatures in the mid- to upper 70s by Friday afternoon. Winds behind the front could gust to 20-25 mph.

Breezy winds should begin to die down by Friday evening. Trick-or-treaters can expect clear skies and cool temperatures dropping quickly as the sun goes down. Temperatures will reach the upper 60s by sunset.

People heading out to high school football games can expect temperatures to reach the lower 60s and even some upper 50s by the end of the fourth quarter.

Saturday morning will be the coolest of the weekend, with morning lows starting out in the upper 40s.

The rest of the weekend will continue to feel much more like fall, with temperatures topping out in the mid-70s through Sunday afternoon.
