Welcome Back 70s! End of Weekend Rain Chance
After a week of uncharacteristic cold in the Brazos Valley, we are set to walk out to more spring like standards. Highs are slated to reach the upper 60s / low 70s Saturday with a surge into the low / mid 70s waiting for you Sunday. While you should not expect a weekend washout, keep in mind a bit of rain is possible from time to time.
Spotty showers to patchy drizzle is expected to roam the area through midday Saturday. Afternoon hours could feature a brief window of sunshine before overcast conditions return from the south in advance of our next weather maker. Sunday is an overcast day -- morning spot rain is possible with the more likely chance of rain & thunderstorms arriving by late afternoon & into the evening hours. While the overall threat is low, an isolated strong to briefly severe storm is not ruled out -- big wind gusts would be the main concern. 1/2" to 1" of rain is expected in gauges to close out the weekend before the next cold front sweeps through. Monday brings back sunshine, a north breeze, & highs in the low 60s.
Friday Night: Mainly cloudy with a 30% chance of drizzle / light rain. Low: 50, warming to the mid-50s by sunrise. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of light rain before noon. High: 70. Wind: S 5-15 mph.
Saturday Night: Cloudy with areas of light rain possible. Low: 61. Wind: S 5-15 mph.
Sunday: Cloudy with a 60% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 73. Wind: S 10-20 mph.
