San Antonio First Warning Weather Forecasts


Pacific and Gulf moisture continued to increase across the region today.  Cloudy skies kept morning lows in the 60 and limited the amount of warming to the low 70s.  An upper level storm system and tropical system off the western coast of Mexico plus an approaching cold front will combine to provide favorable conditions for rain into the weekend.  This will impact travel and outdoor activities across the region into Saturday.

Thanksgiving morning will start out with low clouds and/or drizzle and light rain.  Southeast winds will continue to funnel Gulf moisture into the region.  Temperatures will be in the upper 60s.  A west coast upper storm will slide south and begin to move eastward.  Mid-day temperatures will warm into the low 70s with rain chances increasing across the region.  Warm, Gulf air will ride up and over the cooler surface air to produce widespread light rain and/or drizzle for the afternoon.  Peak afternoon temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s.  I am expecting just light rain for the most part with totals generally under an inch. 

The deep moisture flow will continue overnight Thursday into Friday morning ahead of an approaching cold front.  Hurricane Sandy, a category 3 storm with 115mph winds will take a turn towards the west coast of Mexico.   The upper level storm will begin to wobble around across the northwestern U.S. keep us in a deep southwest flow aloft.  Conditions will quickly favor the potential for moderate to heavy rainfall. 

The cold front will drop into the state early Friday and head southward.  Showers and storms will fire up to the west Thursday evening.  The strongest storms will be focused across North Texas by Friday morning.  Storms will move into the Hill County by late Friday afternoon and increase as we head into Friday evening.  The front will act as a trigger to continue rain chances into the weekend.

Rainfall totals will generally range from 1-3 inches across the area with isolated spots to over the Hill Country and to the northeast receiving 4 to 6 inches of rain.
