Check back periodically and look for updates as they occur. You can start now lining up your daily wear of t-shirts and shorts because it's almost a safe bet that San Antonio won't have snow that time of year!! In most years, San Antonio averages a daily maximum temperature for April between 78 and 83 degrees Fahrenheit (25 to 29 degrees Celsius). The minimum temperature usually falls between 55 and 62 °F (13 to 16 °C). So pass the word and all y'all come down and have a blast!
