KSAT Weather: Rain chances to increase Thursday evening

SAN ANTONIO – A fairly complex weather scenario is unfolding across Texas Thursday afternoon as a fairly weak cold front continues to slowly migrate southward towards San Antonio and is creating a bit of an unsettled pattern. 

In addition, a weak upper-level disturbance spinning in northern Mexico is throwing some moisture our way to create more instability. This front is seriously lacking punch and will do little to cool temperatures down and will instead bring them down to more seasonal levels

So far, most of the heavy rain came overnight Wednesday and early Thursday morning with northern and western portions of our viewing area getting pockets of half an inch to an inch of rainfall; particularly near Uvalde, Leakey and north towards Blanco.

It would be a good idea to keep the umbrella handy as more scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast as the front inches closer to the Alamo City.  Some storms, though brief, could produce some locally heavy rain in a short amount of time and cause some gusty winds. 

For the end of the week and into Friday Night Football, rain chances will taper off some but still can’t rule out an isolated shower as the front will still be in our vicinity; so keep the umbrella and ponchos on stand-by.  No organized severe weather is anticipated as temperatures will linger in the mid 70s.

The first half of the weekend is forecast to remain rain-free with highs on Saturday reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s. Will be a great day to be outdoors under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Sunday we’ll increase rain chances once again with scattered showers and thunderstorms in the forecast, but it will not be an all-day event.  Highs will come back to near-normal levels in the mid 70s with lows in the mid-60s.  Saturday is looking like the best day to be out and an about without being interrupted by rain chances.
