Meantime, a cold front is slowly easing south through the area.
It has made for a large range in temperatures today. Expect it to be in the 50s and 60s behind the front, with warmer daytime highs in the 70s ahead of the front.
Friday brings another chance for rain, as a secondary front heads our way. The best chance of rain will be across the Edwards Plateau and Hill Country. More pockets of heavy rain will be possible.
That cold front sweeps through San Antonio by midday Saturday. Along the front, a broken line of showers is forecast to develop.
Once the front moves through, slightly cooler and drier air will filter into South Texas. Clearing skies are forecast for Saturday afternoon.
Sunday should be quiet, but rain chances pick up again next week. In fact, showers and cool air will be around for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The chance of rain continues through midweek.
