SAN ANTONIO – A rare late July/early August front helped to kick off some storms across South Texas Friday afternoon and evening. While San Antonio International only picked up a trace of rain, other spots across the KSAT viewing area made out much better! Here’s a look at radar-estimated rainfall totals as of 11 PM Friday night:

While more rounds of isolated thunderstorms are in the forecast over the next few days, the weekend won’t be a washout. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Isolated showers and storms will linger late Friday night as activity from earlier in the day fizzles out
  • The front that sparked the storms Friday will stall over the area Saturday
  • While the stalled frontal boundary won’t drop our temperatures, is expected to spark more isolated thunderstorms by Saturday afternoon
  • The overall weather pattern may allow for a few more clusters of storms to work into the area on Sunday and again Monday
