Suns out, we’re staying in.

Spring has since sprung, and is one foot out the door. After a couple of 90° days, we are starting to feel that summer heat and getting our daily dose of sunshine.

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.

Probability for a warmer, drier summer

The NOAA forecasts SATX will likely have hotter-than-average temperatures this June, July, and August. During that time frame, researchers also predict equal chances of precipitation.

Drought is still plaguing Central Texas. As of the most recent data, portions of Bexar County is still under Stage 2 water restrictions. NOAA predicts the drought will remain through the end of August.

As a refresher, here’s what the summer months typically look like in San Antonio:

An early look at fall

Although it is subject to change, the NOAA also released predictions for the fall months. Researchers forecast above average temperatures through October, with equal chances of precipitation.

The hottest summer in San Antonio history

Last summer was the hottest on record in San Antonio with:
  • An average temperature of 96º at the San Antonio International Airport.
  • August was San Antonio’s hottest month in history.
We’re crossing our fingers and hoping this doesn’t happen again.
