I would like to know about S.A. if it gets tornado's and warnings all the time? If it's a great place to raise my kids? What part of town should i work or live would be the best? I want to move to S.A. the internet seems to make the place seem like the perfect spot, but afraid of just a few things i've already mentioned. I want to sell my home and move from Kingman, Az. soon. Any advice would be great. Also is it handicap friendly? or does it seem like they discard there sick and old. Just wondering on that part for my son.

Rather than rehash the tornadoes topic which has been well-covered here, I'll just give you some helpful threads to read.

I was considering moving to SA but kinda afraid do to tornado's. Do you have tornado's in SA or tornado warnings all the time? Is the flooding really bad? What is the best side of town to live on and schools for your children to go to? Is SA friendly and good with there handicap and elder people? I want to know everything i can so i can make a good choice wether i should sell my house or not. I now live in Kingman, Az. but the town not very friendly.

That means, once again, our region will have hit and miss storms... we're a lucky select few could get pounced on with a hefty storm while the rest of us remain relatively dry.

Behind this system, we'll take a break from the humidity Friday and Saturday with highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s with clearing skies this weekend. But as we go into next week, the moisture will return and we'll be back to as humid as ever... not that this is all bad news. For there to be any hope to get out of the drought, one must be optimistic as we actually have the moisture in place. We're just missing the trigger to extract that moisture into the form of beneficial rainfall.

I can say, however, that we're much better off than areas up north who are STILL facing cold weather. I spoke with a friend who just got back from a trip to Boston and they complained about the cold.
-------------------------------

San Antonio International Airport:
Tuesday, April 1, 2008

High: 86F/30C
Low: 64F/18C
Precip: N/A

Observations: Morning started off very warm and humid with temperatures in the mid 70s. The afternoon heated up quickly to a high if 86 under mostly cloudy skies. Cold front moved through late in the afternoon and early evening dropping temperatures into the 60s by midnight.



Wednesday, April 2, 2008

High: 78F/26C
Low: 62F/17C
Precip: N/A

Observations: After a cool morning relative to the past few, winds quickly rebounded from the South and East dragging in the clouds and moisture into the atmosphere. Humidity levels surely reflected that trend as it has been getting progressively more humid throughout the day. Overcast conditions prevailed all day.

Looks from the radar like all of the excitement is staying to the north of SA. I don't see anything to the west.
