Pass it back, Ags! It’s looking to be a hot and steamy day at Kyle Field Saturday as the 2021 Fightin’ Texas Aggie football season gets underway. The day starts off in the upper 70s and tops off in the upper 90s with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits by the afternoon hours. Tailgating plans, anyone? Best to keep the water bottle part of them! High pressure in control means plenty of sunshine will be found in between some passing clouds from time to time, and only a 20% chance for a few isolated showers before the sun goes down.

More of the same in store for the second half of the weekend Sunday along with more haze in the sky. A late season plume of Saharan Dust will continue to filter in the haze this weekend as well as bring a slight drop in air quality through the beginning to middle part of next week. Scattered rain chances are back in the forecast by Monday as a weak front approaches Southeast Texas. While not looking to be a total washout for any Labor Day plans, best to keep the rain gear and your PinPoint Weather App handy to be on the safe side. Only other variable to monitor: a weak area of low pressure that emerges in the Southern Gulf of Mexico this weekend. Initially the environment will be too hostile to foster tropical development, but it could try to spin our direction to add rain in the forecast next weekend. For now, confidence is extremely low and is just noted as something to monitor for the time being.

Saturday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for rain. High: 98. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for rain. High: 99. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for a few showers. Low: 77. Wind: SE 0-5 mph.
