Rain in the forecast for July Fourth

By Justin Horne - Weather Authority Meteorologist/Reporter

SAN ANTONIO - Rain chances are in the forecast for July Fourth, with a few downpours possible late in the day in San Antonio.

TIMING:

A disturbance currently over Louisiana will bring scattered showers east of San Antonio by midday Wednesday. 

The arrival of any rain in town likely won't be until the afternoon and evening. 

Rain chances will be in the 40 to 50 percent range when most fireworks shows get underway. The best shot for showers and storms will be overnight Wednesday into Thursday. 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Most of the activity will be isolated to scattered showers.  Some heavier downpours are possible. Lightning and thunder are also possible, but severe weather is not expected.  

July Fourth Festivities:

Rain is in the forecast, but that does not mean everyone will get rain or that outdoor festivities will be canceled. 

Be sure to check the radar on the KSAT Weather app before heading out the door Wednesday and should there be any impending weather, we will be sure to alert you.
