SAN ANTONIO – A cold front moved through early Saturday morning. Yet again, this was a ‘dry front’ — meaning no rain fell across the KSAT 12 viewing area.
It became particularly windy behind the cold front with winds gusting as high as 58 mph in Hondo Saturday morning!
Here’s what you need to know about the rest of the weekend:
- Wind speeds have begun to drop across the area Saturday evening. However, it’ll take until Sunday morning for winds to finally become light across the whole area.
- As wind speeds drop overnight, a light freeze will be possible early Sunday morning for parts of the viewing area. Areas most likely to experience a light freeze are those along and north of Highway 90.
- After a cold start to the day, temperatures will jump into the low to mid- 60s by Sunday afternoon. It will be sunny, humidity will be low, and winds will be light.
- Quiet weather will continue into Monday.
INCREASING DROUGHT ACROSS TEXAS
Drought - which was part of the reason for increased fire danger on Saturday - isn’t just an issue around the San Antonio area. The entire state has seen a rapid increase in drought over the last three months.
At least partially to blame for the lack of rainfall recently is La Nina, which leads to warmer and drier weather across Texas.
