It’s about time.
The weather in San Antonio is finally maintaining a temperature below the triple digits. Hey, the low 90° is something we can celebrate.
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, wetter fall
The NOAA forecasts slightly higher chances — between 33% and 40% — of warmer temperatures this October, November, and December.
During that time frame, the researchers also predict higher precipitation than average.
The much-needed rain may help combat the drought still plaguing Central Texas. As of most recent data, most of Bexar County was under Stage 2 water restrictions. NOAA predicts the drought will remain, but improve, by the end of December.
As a refresher, here’s what fall months typically look like in San Antonio:
An early look at winter
Although it is subject to change, NOAA also released predictions for the winter months. Researchers forecast mostly average temperatures through February, with higher-than-average precipitation.
Recovering from the hottest summer in history
This summer was the hottest on record in San Antonio, with:
- An average temperature of 88.7º at the San Antonio International Airport
- August was San Antonio’s hottest month on record.
We hope we’re not jinxing it, but it looks like we may be done with the 100º days until 2024.
