This Easter weekend is looking to be on the warm and humid side, which is good news if you have outside plans. Temperatures will be slowly approaching 80 degrees, with southeast winds ushering in the humidity. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will yield some relief from the sun, but it will still feel a bit sticky.
Rain chances also look to be lacking this weekend, staying around 5-10% until Monday, when they improve to 20%. After a morning cold front Tuesday, rain will continue into the afternoon hours. The cold front isn't going to do much except shift winds out of the north for the day.
Sunday: Partly cloudy with a 10% chance for showers. High 79. Winds SE 5-15 mph.
Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low 61. Winds SE 5-10 mph.
Monday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for showers. High 80. Winds S 5-10 mph.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low 64. Winds S 5-10 mph.
- Astronomers have discovered what they say is the most Earth-like planet yet detected - a distant, rocky world that's similar in size to our own and exists in the Goldilocks zone where it's not too hot and not too cold for life.
- Southerly winds blew back into the Brazos Valley Wednesday, helping to start a modest warm up for the area. With those warmer temperatures comes increased cloud cover -- along with a spot of rain here and there.
