We’re watching for possible pop-up storms Friday

Plan on keeping the rain gear nearby should you briefly need to use it

We'll see an opportunity for pop-up, passing storms this evening into tonight. (Copyright 2023 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)

While it hasn’t been for everyone so far this week, a few rounds of rain have at least managed to make their way into parts of South Central Texas. The pattern is unsettled and not well defined, meaning showers and storms could pop up at any time. However, the next 24 hours should bring some scattered activity.

Key Points

  • Rain will make its way across the Hill Country through midday Friday.
  • More storms could pop up during the Friday afternoon, evening, and overnight hours. Keep the umbrella with you through Saturday morning.
  • Any storms that develop will be capable of gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and lightning, which will need to be monitored for Friday night football games. A few of the storms could contain small hail.
  • By Saturday afternoon, rain chances will start to drop.
  • Temperatures stay below 100 degrees for the foreseeable future!

Friday ( 9/15)

A broken line of showers and storms continues to bring light rain to parts of the Hill Country. This will continue into the early afternoon.

In terms of Friday night football, plan on taking the rain poncho with you and know that a few lightning delays are entirely possible if storms manage to work through during that time. Again, not for everyone, but it’s something that we’ll be monitoring closely!

While the severe threat is low, storms will be capable of strong winds, lightning, pockets of heavy rain, and in rare cases, some small hail.

Keep in mind that it’ll still be warm and humid today, with temperatures reaching the low to mid-90s.

This Weekend (9/16-9/17)

Showers and storms may still be around Saturday morning, before shifting south by the afternoon. Saturday afternoon, rain chances are much lower.

An isolated rain chance (~20%) continues Sunday and Monday, with highs this weekend in the low 90s.

We’ll keep you posted on-air, online, and on the KSAT Weather Authority App over the next several days.
