Heat wave to continue; little chance of rain

08 Aug 2013

(This story was published almost a month ago—no change in the forecast.)

Based on forecasts, the heat wave will continue into next week. TV broadcasters are hoping for showers to roll in over the weekend; however, charts show only 15 to 25-percent chance. These showers may bring the temperature down into the 90s.

A high pressure dome lingers over our part of the country, thus bringing us the heat wave that is drying up water resources. San Antonio lingers on in stage 2 under the San Antonio Water System. Other communities including Alamo Heights and New Braunfels are under stage 3.

For the most part, rides continue to roll the streets. Approximately 70 riders rolled out at a fast clip on their Monday night from Blue Star Arts complex on S. Alamo. Due to detours, the ride was diverted south before it continued north toward Broadway.

Water is king along with sun blocker, lights for evening, and other safety-related gear.

Only prayer will bring an end to this mess.
