After a sunny and comfortable start to the weekend, changes start to roll in overnight Saturday as our next weather maker and cold front approach the Brazos Valley.

A quick surge in moisture through the overnight hours Saturday will make patchy fog a possibility early Sunday morning, with a few scattered showers possible by sunrise. Throughout the rest of the morning, the rain chance only goes up from there. As our next cold front pushes through Texas, we’ll watch PinPoint Radar for widespread showers and a few thunderstorms ahead of the front by midday and into the early afternoon. As the front pushes through the area, which looks to be around the 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. timeframe, that activity will start to clear out from west to east, with most of the rain looking to exit the Brazos Valley by the early evening hours.

Severe weather does not look overly likely with this round of showers and storms, but if a stronger storm does acquire extra attention, we’ll keep eyes on a stronger isolated wind gust. As drier air filters into the Brazos Valley, the wind picks up as we head into Sunday evening with gusts up to 30 mph+ across the area. Be sure to secure any loose lawn items and outdoor holiday decorations!

As that north wind moves cooler air into the Brazos Valley, we’ll start off the upcoming workweek on a MUCH cooler note. We’ll grab the heavier jackets again in the mornings and reach for cooler-than-average temperatures in the afternoon.
