SUNDAY: A foggy start with scattered rain
The rain chances stick with us through Monday morning.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - While most of us sat on the drier side through the daylight hours Saturday, an increasing rain chance takes us into the back half of the weekend.
Plan on taking the rain jacket out with you to any Saturday night plans! Scattered showers/patches of drizzle are expected to push through portions of the Brazos Valley Saturday night as moisture continues to filter into the area.
Areas of patchy/dense fog are likely to develop through the early morning hours Sunday. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY has been issued for Milam, Robertson, & Leon counties until 12 pm Sunday afternoon, and Lee County until 10 am Sunday morning. If you’re headed out early Sunday morning, take extra care and plan on giving yourself a bit of extra time out on the roads! Visibility could be reduced to a quarter mile or less at times.
As a warm front pushes through the Brazos Valley, rounds of scattered rain are possible throughout the day Sunday. Most of the activity found on PinPoint Radar is expected to sit on the lighter side, but you’ll still want to take the umbrella out with you for any late weekend activities.
The rain activity found Sunday looks to continue into early Monday morning. As our next weather maker and associated cold front approach the Brazos Valley, a line of showers with the potential for a few thunderstorms is slated to push through the area around the morning commute. After the front passes by, gradual clearing will take place from west to east, ending the day with a bit more sunshine. By the time all is said and done, current thinking is that rainfall totals may range anywhere from 0.10″ - 0.50″+ with some localized higher totals in areas that are able to pick up on a few heavier showers/storms.
In terms of stronger activity across the Brazos Valley -- severe weather is currently not anticipated with this weather maker’s activity. That threat sits up to our north around the DFW area and points off to the northeast, where folks will need to monitor for hail and gusty winds with a brief spin-up not completely ruled out.
Despite the front pushing through Monday, temperatures are still slated to sit on the above-average side through the next few days. As a bit more sunshine works back in after the front, upper 60s and low 70s will stick with us for the beginning of next week. We’ll look ahead to another front that looks to move into the area midweek, which could bring that seasonable feel back for a few days. Stay tuned!
