I've got good news and bad news for you San Antonio. We finally got some rain last night, a little more than 3 inches in some parts of town, and we may get some more later this week, according to the National Weather Service. 

Depending on where you live, your dog may have even had the chance to play in a puddle before tracking mud into your home. Ask me how I know.

Live Oak rainfall was registered as high as 3.76 inches, but other parts of Bexar County received less than an inch. Hollywood Park saw 0.15 inches and Alamo Heights got 0.55 inches.

Thunderstorms are expected closer to the coast Wednesday, June 29, but are not expected to make it as far as Bexar County. A tropical airmass is pushing the weather into our region and providing us with some cloud cover as well this week. 

Clouds should keep the weather a little more bearable in the mid to low 90s for the rest of the week, with night temperatures dipping into the mid to high 70s. There's a chance for more thunderstorms on Friday, July 1, and Saturday, July 2, but the NWS puts the probability of those at 20%.

Here's where I've got to give you the bad news. Forecasts for next week put the temperature at about 99 degrees on Monday, July 4, and back to 101 degrees on Tuesday, July 5. Bring some water to those Independence Day barbecues.

Above-normal heat is expected to continue from July 6 to July 12, according to NWS. A Wednesday morning tweet puts the chances of that anywhere between 60-80%, depending on how far north you go into the Texas Hill Country.
