On behalf of the KSAT Weather Authority Team, we hope you had a great Thanksgiving. 😊🦃 We’ve got more weather changes ahead over the next few days. So, if you’re hosting family or just want to spend some time outdoors, here’s what you need to know:


  • After a somewhat windy day Thursday, wind speeds will drop Thursday night. Skies will remain mostly cloudy. Temperatures will tumble into the 40s in many spots through dawn Friday. Parts of the Hill Country will dip into the upper 30s, but a widespread freeze is not expected there.

  • Temperatures will warm into the upper 50s and low 60s by the afternoon. It will be difficult to warm up much during the day, thanks to lingering cloud cover. In fact, while a few peeks of sun will be possible through midday, skies are expected to become overcast later in the day. Scattered rain will arrive very late - after midnight in most locations.


  • An area of low pressure will swing across Texas on Saturday. This will result in gray skies and intermittent, light rain for much of the day. Because rain is expected to be light, there’s no concern for severe weather or flooding. Rain will end from west to east across the area Saturday evening as the low pressure system leaves Texas. Due to showers and cloud cover, temperatures will be stuck in the 50s again on Saturday.

Here’s a snapshot of how radar could look on Saturday morning:

  • Sunday will be a nice day to be outdoors! Expect a mix of sun and clouds with high temperatures rebounding into the upper 60s and low 70s.
