Storms Move Out, Back to Normal Hot August Weather Today

It looks like Monday's drenching rains and flooding are in our rear view mirror, as we return to a normal hot and sunny early August weather pattern today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Even though a chance of a scattered thunderstorm lingers in our forecast until noon, the Weather Channel says by this afternoon we'll see temperatures back in the mid 90s under sunny skies.

The morning commute is a dry one today, with only seven streets and intersections still barricaded due to flooding, down from more than 35 at the height of the flooding.

CPS Energy reports all of the customers who lost power during the thunderstorms have had the power restored.

The National Weather Service says 3.31 inches of rain fell officially at the Airport, breaking a record for August 7th that was set back in 1974.  Some parts of the metro received more than 6 inches.

The San Antonio Fire Department reported 24 calls for high water during the storm, and in seven of those cases, including the dramatic rescue at Highway 151 and Pinn Road that went viral, people had to be rescued from flooded vehicles.

There were also four fires that were believed to have been caused by lightning strikes.

San Antonio Water System officials say they are responding to three storm sewer overflows which were caused by the drenching rains.
