BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The first approaches Sunday and passes by Monday. The wind turns breezy -- 10-20mph -- those two days with the chance for a quick, broken line of rain and a few rumbles of thunder Monday morning. Up to 0.5″ of rain could be up for grabs to start the week. Then, eyes are on the next system, which, as of right now, looks to bring a better chance for more widespread rain, and may eventually give us a return to a more fall-like airmass by next weekend.

In the meantime: Hot afternoons give way to pleasant evenings through Sunday, with a few knots added to the wind each day.

After starting off the morning in the mid 60s early Saturday, another warm afternoon (especially for October standards) is in the works. Tailgate plans on campus? Nothing stopping you but the heat, but it may not hurt to have something to weigh down the tents with wind gusts up to 20 mph+ possible through the second half of the day. We’ll kick off the game in the mid 80s, dipping to the 70s before the end of the 4th thanks to mostly clear skies on hand.

Starting Sunday, eyes will be on the radar to our north and west to assess or early Monday storm chance.

Enough ingredients will be in place for some strong storms, especially to our north. Our strong storm potential is more conditional, and largely depends on if expected storms will last the journey into our area by Monday morning. Should they survive, strong, straight-line wind gusts will be the main concern as we potentially start the work week on a rumbly note. Regardless, this front will not have the juice to push through the area, setting up a muggy rest of the week.

A second, bigger system is expected to dive south early in the week, slipping past Texas to the north by mid-to-late week. This may end up being the better widespread storm chance, and signs are that this will have the oomph to give us some cooler weather to wrap up the week and head into next weekend.
