SAN ANTONIO – It’s safe to say that a lot of people are looking forward to this year’s Fourth of July holiday festivities! There’s certainly no shortage of events planned, including the City of San Antonio’s Fourth of July Celebration. That being said, the weather will play a big role over the next couple of days.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Sunday Afternoon: Showers and some storms will pop up in the afternoon, with rain ending ending in the evening.
  • Monday will feature another chance of rain as more scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to move through.
  • Thanks to the daily rain chances and increased cloud cover, afternoon high temperatures will only be in the upper 80s and low 90s over the weekend. (It could be much hotter this time of year!)
  • While not much severe weather is expected over the weekend, a few storms could be on the stronger side. The threats would be very heavy rain, frequent lightning, and strong wind gusts.
Rain should come to an end for most firework displays. (Copyright 2021 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)

Weather Safety

You’ve probably heard the KSAT Weather Authority Team say, “When thunder roars, go indoors!” With storms in the forecast this weekend, you’ll need to be ready to move your outdoors plan indoors for a period of time. This includes being ready to get out of the pool or out of our area lakes and rivers. Remember: if you can hear thunder, you’re close enough to be struck by lightning.
