SAN ANTONIO – For many South Texans, this week is spring break. Woohoo!

If you’re staying in town for the week, get ready to crank the A/C. You may need to dodge a shower or two, as well.

Warmth and High Humidity

Temperatures will be trending above average this week, both in the mornings and in the afternoons.

San Antonio’s average morning low for mid-March is in the upper 40s, but we’ll start our days in the low to mid-60s this week.

However, what you’ll likely notice more is how warm it’s going to be each afternoon!

Afternoon high temperatures will be in the low to mid-80s by the middle of the week, a good ten degrees higher than our average for this time of year.

On top of that, it’s also going to be humid! Our dew point temperatures, which measure moisture in the air, will be in the 60s all week. This means it’s going to be feeling quite muggy outside.

A Few Showers This Week

It’s a bit of a messy weather pattern, so isolated rain is possible throughout the week -- especially Tuesday and by the weekend.

Most of the KSAT viewing area is in some type of drought, so we’ll take any chance of rain that we can get. You can check the latest drought monitor by clicking here.

However, if you have a lot of outdoor activities planned, you can rest assured that rain won’t be a big concern in the middle of the week. Wednesday and Thursday will likely be partly cloudy with plenty of afternoon sun.

The flow of the jet stream, especially early in the week, will just send a few weak disturbances over San Antonio. This will result in clouds hanging around and a low chance of some showers.

Looking Ahead

Toward the end of the break, rain chances will rise a bit as our next low pressure system approaches from the west coast.

Best chance for rain during Spring Break is early in the week and by the weekend.
