We will head into the weekend watching our chances of rain evaporate away each day. There may still be enough energy in the atmosphere to fire up some scattered showers tomorrow but will be few and far between. High pressure will center up over the region by late weekend and send any rain chances packing. This will bring a return of above normal temperatures and heat index values in the triple digits.
Saturday will start out cloudy with temperatures in the upper 70s. Light south winds will not be enough to bring much cooling. Clouds will begin to scatter out by mid-morning with temperatures rising into the low 80s. The lunch hour will bring partly cloudy skies and temperatures approaching 90. Winds will turn more to the southeast but remain generally light. A few showers could fire up along the coastal regions and over the western Hill Country during the afternoon. Chances of seeing any rain in San Antonio will be very slim. Peak afternoon temperatures will hit the mid and upper 90s. Heat Index Values will be in the triple digits. Saturday evening will cool into the mid 80’s by mid-evening with a slight increase in cloud cover.
Long term – high pressure will dominate the weather pattern bringing a return of the searing, dry weather pattern. Temperatures will trend above the normal with only isolated coastal showers at best. We could see some relief towards the end of the week as the ridge begins to break down allowing better chances of rain to develop across the region.
