With thunderstorms and rain predicted across this weekend in San Antonio, the San Antonio River Walk has been forced to cancel its popular Ford Fiesta de las Luminarias event.

They made the announcement on Twitter earlier today.

The centuries-old tradition begins at dusk Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for three weekends, only in December. Luminarias are a traditional Mexican Christmas lantern originally consisting of a candle set in sand inside a small bag. There were over 2000 luminarias on display along the river walk.

While this is disappointing news for people that were looking forward to attending the event, there is better weather news predicted for Christmas.

The weather is expected to be dry from Monday morning, and at this stage, Christmas Day is predicted to be dry and with a high of 75. The unseasonably warm San Antonio weather is due to the La Nina conditions. La Nina results in drier and warmer weather than typical winter weather.

The warmer and drier weather expected after the weekend will mean there will be plenty more opportunities to enjoy many of the other Christmas displays around San Antonio.
