SAN ANTONIO – KSAT 12 meteorologist Mike Osterhage says more showers and some moderate rain is in store Wednesday morning. Rain will then begin to taper off this afternoon.

Osterhage said the high temperatures will stay on the cool side at around 67 degrees.

A shower is possible the next few days, and temperatures will again stay cool through the weekend, Osterhage said.


(Original Story)

Bexar County had a good round of showers and storms early Tuesday morning, officially leading to 0.45 inches of rainfall at San Antonio International. However, there were some pockets of heavier rainfall that led to much higher rainfall of about one to three inches. This was especially true in northeastern Medina County, where Doppler radar estimates around three to four inches fell.

The rain tapered off in the late morning hours, and the area has been left with gloomy overcast skies. Showers and storms are beginning to take shape once again in the Hill Country and west/southwest of San Antonio as a cold front pushes into the area. There’s not a big amount of cold air associated with the front, but it will keep temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s for the next several days.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere, a low-pressure system continues to stay close by and has retrograded into northern Mexico. This keeps the area in a favorable position for cloudy skies and the opportunity for isolated/scattered showers to continue into the overnight hours. Until it clears out to the northeast, which should occur by the weekend, the clouds and rainfall chance will stay put.

With that in mind, the area will have one more cloudy day Wednesday with isolated showers and highs in the upper 60s. As the low begins to kick out, the clouds will begin to break up and partly cloudy skies should return by Friday, and highs will slowly warm near seasonal levels in the lower 70s. The weekend is looking great for outdoor activities. Sunday may see some isolated showers, especially south of Bexar County, but should still be in good shape with highs in the mid 70s.
