SAN ANTONIO – As high temperatures reached the low to mid-90s Thursday afternoon, sweater weather was probably the furthest thing from your mind! However, our weather will be changing big time as we finish out the school and workweek!

The strong cold front is scheduled to push through South Texas early Friday morning, with an arrival in San Antonio between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.  You will want to dress accordingly tomorrow, as the change will be abrupt. Here's what to expect:

  • A rapid drop in temperatures from the 70s into the 60s and possibly 50s
  • A broken line of showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall totals will generally stay on the low end
  • Gusty winds from the north, with gusts as high as 30 mph

By Friday night and Saturday morning, low temperatures may slip into the 40s. Clouds will hold for much of the day Saturday, keeping temperatures cool. Afternoon sun is possible on Sunday, allowing for a modest warm-up.
