Chance of thunderstorms, slight temperature drop Monday

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Heat headlines are turned off for the San Antonio area Monday, and the dip in temperatures could come with needed rain.

At a time when the Edwards Aquifer and Canyon Lake are reaching historic lows, the National Weather Service is calling for a 40% chance rain throughout Monday.

But temperatures are expected to bump again as early as Tuesday with more heat headlines possible.

NOTE: For those who have to work outside, it will be important to take appropriate precautions. The same can be said for those enjoying recreational activities outdoors.

Drinking plenty of water and taking frequent breaks, preferably in an air-conditioned environment, are strongly recommended.

Never leave young children or pets unattended in cars or trucks as the temperature can rise 20 degrees in as few as 10 minutes with the windows rolled up during the hottest times of the day.
