Take extra care out on the roads early Sunday morning! Areas of patchy/dense fog are expected to develop, reducing visibility. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect for Milam, Robertson, and Leon counties until 12 p.m. Sunday afternoon, and Lee County until 10 a.m. Sunday morning as visibility could be reduced to a quarter mile or less at times.

As a warm front moves northward Sunday, we’ll hold onto a scattered rain chance throughout the day as showers/patches of drizzle move from south to north across the area. As our next cold front approaches the Brazos Valley early Monday morning, a line of showers with the potential for a few thunderstorms is slated to move through the area. As the front pushes through, we’ll look to clear things out from west to east throughout the day Monday, with more sunshine in the forecast by Monday afternoon. At this time, severe weather is not anticipated for the Brazos Valley, but we’ll continue to monitor the storm chance over the next 24 hours. By the time all is said and done, some may be able to find 0.10″ - 0.50″ in the rain gauge Monday afternoon.

Despite the cold front’s arrival, we’ll look to hold onto an above-average temperature outlook for the next few days. Daytime highs will head for the low-to-mid 70s Sunday afternoon, and look to only dip down into the low 70s for Monday and Tuesday. We’ll watch for another cold front to swing its way across the state Wednesday, which could then bring back a little bit more of a seasonable feel for the back half of next week. Stay tuned!
