Warmth Returns, Rain Chance Stays This Weekend
The Brazos Valley has been fairly quiet on the radar, but fog hangs heavy for a few of us this afternoon. We've still got a shot at showers and storms, but most of us look quieter today. Only a chance for some scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon to evening. Temperature forecast continues to be tricky, but the general idea is that most along and south of Hwy21 will reach the 70s by this afternoon. Others to the north staying about 20 to 30 degrees cooler.
Showers likely pop back up again late tonight into Saturday morning, then a cold front gives us our next shot at thunderstorms Saturday afternoon into the evening. This will be one to watch, especially for folks north of OSR. As of right now, we're only expecting isolated strong to severe storms (if any) in our area, with much more favorable conditions to our north and east. The main threat will be for strong winds and large hail. While the severe threat is there, most of us may not see more than a few drops of rain. Keep tuned as we go through the afternoon Saturday especially. After that, a few lingering showers will be possible with a cooler Sunday. Remember sunshine? That comes back just in time for the work week to start on Monday with highs working back into the 70s.
