After the cloud cover rolled in Friday, moisture ahead of our next system increases the rain chance through the overnight hours. We’ll monitor for some scattered showers and a bit of patchy fog pre-sunrise Saturday morning, before widespread showers and a few rumbles of thunder move in as our next cold front passes through the Brazos Valley in the morning to early afternoon.

While Saturday’s rain activity looks to sit sub-severe, if a stronger storm does require any extra attention, we’ll monitor for some gusty winds/small hail. Most of the rain looks to sit east of the area by the 5/6 p.m. timeframe, so most Saturday night plans look to sit in good shape, with the exception of a stray, lingering shower. As high pressure sets in behind the front, the sunshine returns for the back half of the weekend with afternoon temperatures slated to reach the low 60s. The sunshine warms us up into the upper 60s by early next week, before another front pushes through and brings in a bit more of that holiday feeling just in time for Christmas.

Saturday: Cloudy. 70% chance of scattered showers and isolated storms. High: 64. Wind: S/N 10-15 mph, gusting 25 mph+.

Saturday Night: Clearing skies. Low: 39. Wind: NW 5-15 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High: 63. Wind: NW 5-10 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 40. Wind: NE 0-5 mph.
