My uncle has lived in San Antonio for a couple of years now, when I asked him what the weather had been like for past week he told me that it was much colder than it usually had been during that time of year. A cold front had just came in with temperatures ranging from 26-43 degrees, but really during this time of year temperatures are supposed to be in the 60s and 70s. They had just gotten about an inch of rain and the temperatures did not seem like they were going to get better. He said "I dont know where the cold front came from i just hope that it ends soon."

Tornados and Ocean Currents.

San Antonio hasn't had much tornado activity. Tornado's seem to hit more land that is flat like Oklahoma and Kansas but San Antonio is more likely to be affected by a hurricane than a tornado. Even though its not close enough to be affected by ocean currents if a hurricane gets big enough San Antonio could still get some of the flooding and humidity form the hurricane and currents. If the city were to be moved even just a little bit closer to the beach, it could cause a little damage if a hurricane ever came, considering that San Antonio has some beaches that are fairly close to it like South Padre Island that is about 4 hours away and Port Aransas that is about 2 hours away.

Being the Second largest city in Texas, San Antonio will tend to get much hotter than smaller cities like Colleyville. The bigger the city the hotter it will get along with more pollution.
