A somewhat quieter weekend is in store with lower rain chances and warmer temperatures. A few showers may pop up to start off the day Saturday morning, and again in the afternoon with more daytime heating. Still, the coverage looks to be much less than what we’ve seen over the past few days, with the rain chance looking more isolated for the first half of the weekend. Afternoon temperatures look to trend on the warmer side due to the lack of rain-cooled air and more peeks of sunshine, with most headed for the low 90s before the day is done.

More of the same message is in store for the first half of the day Sunday as high pressure tries to nudge its way in from the west. Slightly higher coverage of rain & rumbles may arrive as early as late Sunday as another area of low pressure drags a cold front into North Texas. This boundary looks to stop short of the Brazos Valley, but with plenty of moisture along and ahead of that system, scattered rain & storms will be back in the forecast Sunday night and into Monday. Any boundary that forms from said storms will be worth watching for additional coverage increase into early next week, but generally, we’ll be done with widespread rain in favor of more scattered activity (with a lot more sun) next week. Something else to monitor -- a plume of Saharan Dust that looks to filter into South Texas early next week, making for some hazy skies out on the horizon. Stay tuned!
