More sunshine in place throughout the day Saturday will help afternoon highs reach for the low-to-mid 90s for any Juneteenth plans. An isolated shower can’t completely be ruled out by the afternoon, but the vast majority of the Brazos Valley will sit dry.

The same can be said heading into Father’s Day on Sunday. Thermometers climb into the mid 90s with partly cloudy skies on hand by the afternoon after starting off Sunday morning in the mid 70s. We’ll keep eyes on the chance to see a quick downpour, but no need to cancel any plans that you may have out with dad!

In tropical news -- Potential Tropical Cyclone Three has strengthened into Tropical Storm Claudette as the system continues to swirl in the northern Gulf of Mexico Saturday morning. Heavy rain will batter portions of the Southeast through the weekend as the system takes a turn to the northeast after moving inland throughout the day Saturday. The next low pressure system (non-tropical) works to pull in some of that gulf moisture by the end of the weekend into next week. Coupled with a weak front, some scattered showers and storms will be possible through the first half of next week, making for a very humid, but potentially cooler start before sunshine returns ahead of the next weekend.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with an isolated chance for a stray shower. High: 95. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 76. Wind: S 0-5 mph.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with an isolated chance for tropical downpours. High: 96. Wind: S 5-15 mph.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 73. Wind: S 10-15 mph.
