The rain gauge at San Antonio International Airport has recorded 12.3 inches less rain in 2023 compared to the year-to-date average. However, weather patterns from New Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico are expected to generate moisture over the San Antonio area on Wednesday. The National Weather Service reported that some areas could receive as much as a quarter of an inch of rain, with strong rain chances lingering through Wednesday afternoon. An even better chance for rain is expected at the end of the week, as a Pacific cold front will push through the area on Friday and may trigger some showers as early as Thursday night. The best rain chances will be during the day Friday, and rainfall amounts could reach an inch in northern sections of South Central Texas, but most of the area is expected to receive about half an inch. The rain and clouds are also expected to keep temperatures on the mild to chilly side for the rest of the work week, with highs just below or just above 60 and lows just below or just above 50. Weekend highs will also be in the 60’s, and lows will be in the 40’s, but the sky should be mostly clear. The Hill Country will see temperatures in the 30’s this weekend. The cold air mass is expected to stick around in San Antonio through Tuesday.
