For now, the San Antonio area is now in Stage 2 Water Restrictions. This means that you can use irrigation systems, soakers, and sprinklers on your designated watering day ONLY from 7 to 11 a.m. and 7 to 11 p.m. You can use your hand held hoses any time but it's best to not water during the heat of the day.
Watering days are based on the last number of your home address:
0 and 1 - Monday
2 and 3 - Tuesday
4 and 5 - Wednesday
6 and 7 - Thursday
8 and 9 - Friday
You will likely be able to give your sprinkler system a break this weekend into early next week as rain chances will be going up. The clouds and periodic rains will keep temperatures down as well.
A broad area of low pressure over the western Carribean will track northwesterward over the coming days. Right now computer models have been in pretty good agreement bringing this system into the Lone Star State this weekend. This will ramp up rain chances Satuday and Sunday. It appears this system will stall over South Texas into early and maybe even the middle of next week, keeping the rain chances in the forecast. With rounds of showers and some thunderstorms, rainfall totals will add up. Widespread 1 to 3 inches is forecast, but some totals may get closer to 4 inches when the rain finally starts to wind down by later next week.
Due to more cloud cover over the coming days, temperatures will be down in the low to mid 90s for the rest of the week. By the weekend as we see more rain showers, highs may not even hit 90 degrees.
