The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo starts today. If you’ve lived in San Antonio for a while, you know we normally see a freeze during the rodeo. This isn’t a scientific method, by any means – but it’s a reminder that freezes during this time of year are common. A look at the different 7-day forecasts from the TV stations show our low temperatures will be dropping back into the 40s by this weekend. Not exactly a freeze by any means, but still fairly chilly.

So don’t be surprised if the heater still gets some use over the next couple of weeks. You know that old saying about Texas weather: If you don’t like it, just wait 15 minutes.
