Summertime cool down, good rain chances on horizon

Streak of 100-degree days about to end

SAN ANTONIO – Tired of the hot, blazing, seemingly out of control heat of the past 11 days? Well chipper up! Some significant rain chances and cooler temperatures are just around the corner.

After enduring the hottest temperatures in nearly two years, it hit 104 degrees Saturday, a significant cool front (for summertime standards) is eyeing a path towards South Texas.

Sunday is expected to be our last day above 100 degrees for the next several days.

In the next 24 hours, spotty rain chances are expected to enter the forecast snapping our record-breaking heat streak.

By mid-week our chance of rain will hit 30 percent and by Friday it will be closer to 50 percent.

While it is too soon to pin down how much rain will fall, early models indicate some area could pick up over an inch.

The rain could not come at a better time in recent weeks multiple counties have put up burn bans and San Antonio is on the verge of Stage 2 water restrictions.

If no rain falls at San Antonio International Airport before midnight Tuesday, the month will end with less than one-fifth of an inch of rain and almost 2.5 inches below normal. The lack of rain is coupled with a dry June, where the monthly deficit was nearly 3.75 inches.
