Always good to see Friday roll around and the weekend begin. Even better, when news in the weather world is a cold front slated to move into the Brazos Valley over the weekend. We're looking for a blast of fall to move right on in over the next 24 hours.
When you wake up in the morning, mostly cloudy to partly cloudy conditions will be overhead, temperatures will raise from the low 70s around sunrise to the mid 80s by the noon hour. To go along with those warmer temperatures, there will be a touch of muggy air sitting overhead as well.
By the noon hour, a cold front will start to knock on the door of our northern counties -- Milam, Robertson, and Leon Counties.
As the winds slowly start to turn around from the north and northwest, a thin, broken line of showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible -- 30%. The lack of rain in the forecast can be blamed on drier air in the mid-to-upper levels of the atmosphere. Best rain timing will come between noon and 5pm. Once the front passes by, a few light showers to drizzle could be possible from mostly cloudy skies.
Heading towards sunset, winds should turn breezy from the north / northwest. We're looking at a 10-15mph, with higher gusts upwards of 20mph+ by the end of Saturday. That wind will carry in drier and cooler air to the Brazos Valley. Temperatures are expected in the mid-70s by 7pm and in the upper 60s by 10pm. We'll continue to tumble to the 50s by Sunrise Sunday morning.
If you're planning on getting out to Aggieland Humane Society's Wiener Fest 2013 at Wolf Pen Creek tomorrow, we should have the green light -- could be dodging some of those showers we were talking about by the finals of the Wiener Races.
Cooler Air on the Way
Check out the temperatures for the next couple of days -- be sure to find a light jacket or sweater / a few blankets for the overnight and early morning hours!
