Soggy and windy Black Friday in store for South Central Texas – KSAT San Antonio

After a foggy and drizzly start to Thanksgiving Day with showers and a few thunderstorms, a widespread chance for rain arrives on Black Friday with on-and-off rain expected throughout the majority of the day.

Here’s what you need to know before heading out to snag any deals ahead of the weekend:

Friday

  • Rainy … meaningful rain … helpful rain is expected to push across South Central Texas
  • Widespread rain varying in intensity throughout the day, with the highest coverage expected in the afternoon and evening hours
  • Up to 1″-2″ possible in some locations by Friday night
  • Windy: NE 10-20 mph with gusts up to 25 mph
  • Cooler with temperatures cooling into the mid 50s by the afternoon

We’ll need to watch for ponding on the sides of roadways along with a few minor flooding issues in poor drainage/low-lying areas and common trouble spots before the day is done.

Rain chances increase throughout the day Friday

Saturday

  • A few lingering spotty showers possible first thing in the morning (mainly east of SA) before we clear things out completely
  • A healthy west breeze, gusting upwards of 25-30 mph at times
  • Clearing skies throughout the day, leading to more sunshine
  • Highs in the 60s

Sunday

  • A pleasant day expected with chilly morning lows in the 40s followed by afternoon highs in the 70s
  • Sunny skies
  • Minimal breeze — making for a great day to set up the outdoor Christmas decorations!
A rainy day is in the works Friday before the sunshine returns this weekend
