Fog slow to clear Friday morning, storm chance this weekend

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex (KBTX) - To make it official, the National Weather Service has gone ahead and issued a Dense Fog Advisory through the early afternoon for areas along and south of OSR.

It's been a foggy, misty, drizzly start to the day for just about the entire area, with only a few of us have seen any rain worthy of filling up the rain gauge. For the rest of Friday, as the fog clears, we'll only see scattered (at best) showers and maybe a stray storm in the afternoon.

In other words, keep outdoor plans for the evening, but lug along the rain gear all weekend!

Rain chances bump back up late tonight into Saturday morning, then there's a chance for thunderstorms as our next cold front moves in Saturday afternoon/evening. We're monitoring the chance for some strong storms, but at the moment, there's a much more favorable environment for producing strong storms to our north and east. Should we see a strong storm, main threats will be from strong, damaging winds.

Sunday, we should see some moisture exit the area with a peek of blue sky here and there for our northern counties, but some lingering showers will be possible too, especially south of Hwy290.

Bottom line: Keep the rain gear this weekend, but most won't see more than a tenth of an inch.
