Strong storm chances return to the forecast by Thursday evening

You likely noticed it stepping outside Wednesday — the humidity has returned. Not only will that moisture allow a heat index to return to the forecast in the coming days, but it will also help spark a few storm chances for parts of South Central Texas.

Here’s what we’ll be monitoring through the second half of the week and into the upcoming weekend:


  • A muggy, warm, and dry day with a high in the mid-80s
A warm, muggy day is expected Wednesday


  • Patchy fog will be possible for the morning drive, ahead of another warm and humid day with a high in the low 80s.
  • Around 5 p.m., eyes will turn out west where scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop in northern Mexico and move into our far western counties.
  • A few of these storms could quickly become strong-to-severe, with large hail and strong wind gusts being the main concerns to monitor.
  • This activity will track east through the evening hours, and depending on how well it holds together, could potentially impact part of the San Antonio area by 8 p.m. – 10 p.m.
  • Whatever is left of the rain and storms should push through our far eastern counties by 11 p.m. – midnight, leaving much quieter overnight hours.
Scattered strong/severe storms will be possible Thursday evening, especially west of San Antonio

FRIDAY (5/5)

  • A hot and muggy day will round out the work week, with a high in the upper 80s and more humidity.
  • A few isolated thunderstorms will be possible in the afternoon/evening, and while a low-end risk, could briefly become strong/severe.

THIS WEEKEND (5/6 – 5/7)

  • The biggest theme this weekend will still be the heat and the humidity.
  • Highs are expected to climb to about 90° each afternoon, but added moisture will likely make it feel like the mid-90s.
  • Additional isolated storm chances (~30%) are in the forecast each day, so we’ll keep our eyes on the radar closely.
