Slowly Warming Back to 70° by Late Weekend
An interesting weekend and a tale of two seasons in store for outdoor plans. We run from a light freeze to just above it Saturday morning to the chilly mid-50° afternoon under increasing cloud cover.
Warmer air is headed into the Brazos Valley overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. That means we drop to 48° after sunset Saturday and then spend the overnight hours slowly warming. We won't stop that warming until we top off at / near 70° by Sunday afternoon, alongside a breezy south to southwest wind. With that warmer air comes a small chance at passing, light showers to end the weekend. Mild through early next week before another big cold front arrives somewhere around Wednesday / Thursday.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy. High: 54. Wind: ESE 5-10 mph.
Saturday Night: Cloudy with a 20% chance of rain / drizzle. Low: 48, with temperatures rising near 60 by sunrise. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph.
Sunday: Cloudy with a 30% chance of spotty, light showers. High: 71. Wind: SSW 10-20 mph.
Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 58. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
