We know the question on your mind, San Antonians — when’s it going to get cold? It may be a little bit chilly now, but let’s take a look what winter may have in store for us.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently released its newest seasonal climate outlook — here’s what the next three months may look like in the Alamo City.

Reminder: The first day of winter is on Thursday, Dec. 21.

The NOAA forecasts equal chances for both higher and lower temperatures in December, January, and February.

During that time frame, the researchers also predict higher precipitation than average.

Expect more precipitation. San Antonio has a 33-40% chance of seeing higher than normal average snow and rainfall amounts this winter.


The much-needed rain may help combat the drought still plaguing Central Texas. As of most recent data, most of Bexar County is under Stage 2 water restrictions. NOAA predicts the drought will remain, but improve, by the end of February.
