Friday morning’s drive was slowed a little by patchy drizzle and even some areas of thick fog. Brighter skies have taken over this afternoon, but we’re still expecting a pretty decent break in the dampness later today and for a good chunk of Saturday, too. If the clouds break enough to let the sun out, we will have no problem reaching into the low 70s before the day is done. This evening looks mainly dry, but it wouldn’t hurt to have the rain gear handy just in case of a quick shower.

Moisture is sloshing in and out of the Brazos Valley this weekend. Overcast skies are back Saturday, holding high temperatures to the low and mid 60s. By the evening, more spotty showers / drizzle becomes possible as warmer, humid air arrives out of the Gulf of Mexico. This could feed scattered rain Sunday through Monday morning as the next weather maker slowly crosses North Texas. Temperatures remain mild & generally warmer than you would expect in late January through much of the next 7 to 10 days.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers. High: 73. Wind: Vrb. 0-5 mph.

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance for light rain / drizzle. Low: 58. Wind: ESE 0-5 mph.

Saturday: Cloudy with a 30% chance for scattered rain by evening. High: 67. Wind: ESE 5-10 mph.

Saturday Night: Cloudy with a 60% chance of showers after midnight Low: 62. Wind: SSW 0-5 mph.
