The weather forecast for San Antonio, TX, offers a mixed bag of clear skies and windy conditions, transitioning into a week speckled with the possibility of showers. Saturday started off with morning fog, which soon gave way to sunny skies and windy weather following a midday cold front. According to the National Weather Service, residents experienced "mostly sunny" conditions with a high near 77 and north winds ranging from 15 to 25 mph, gusting up to 40 mph.

The blustery conditions are set to persist into the night. The Weather Service predicts "mostly clear" skies with ongoing brisk north winds of 15 to 20 mph and gusts potentially reaching as high as 35 mph. Meanwhile, a report from KSAT echoed this, forecasting a clear and windy night with temperatures dropping to a low around 41 degrees. These gusty winds are expected to gradually subside by Sunday, giving rise to a calmer and sunny day with highs near 61.

As the new week begins, San Antonio is to look forward to a series of sunny days. The National Weather Service foresees "sunny" weather on Monday with a high near 64 degrees and light south winds kicking up from 5 to 10 mph in the morning. This reprieve may be short-lived, as the outlook for the coming days suggests increasing cloud cover and upped chances for rain.

Heading into midweek, the ambiance shifts as clouds roll in. Tuesday’s forecast, as per the National Weather Service, promises "partly sunny" skies with a 20 percent chance of showers after midnight. Wednesday ups the ante with a 30 percent chance of showers during the day and 30 percent potential again, mainly after midnight. On the other hand, KSAT is notifying a slightly warmer condition of 68 degrees on Tuesday but aligns with predicted showers for Wednesday, anticipating "Cloudy, Rain Afternoon/Evening" and a high near 60 degrees.

The likelihood of rain further escalates towards the end of the week. The National Weather Service alerts a 40 to 50 percent chance of showers on both Thursday and Friday. KSAT concurs with an outlook for "Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Shower" on Thursday and "Cloudy, Few Showers" to close out the week. As the weekend approaches, San Antonians can expect partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies with the absence of forecasted precipitation and daytime highs fluctuating in the 60-degree range. Both weather outlets signal a clear weekend ahead, an opportune time for residents to enjoy the outdoors before another work week begins.
