Light rain chance jump starts the weekend

By  | 

JANUARY 26th, 2018 -- Weekend plans? Overcast skies and drippy weather is possible Saturday. While soggy weather is expected for some, rain totals are anticipated to be less than impressive.

Scattered rain that started in the far reaches of South Texas early Friday, made for a rainy night along the coast to the Houston metro.

Overcast skies are eventually expected to squeeze out a bit of rain Saturday, with the help of a weak cold front.

After midnight, very light showers, patchy drizzle, and areas of fog will become possible for parts of the area. Some wake up to wet sidewalks and driveways while others just find more cloud cover to start the day.

As that north wind turns into the Brazos Valley, the best chance to squeeze out a bit of rain arrives. Looking at a window between 9am and 3pm as the best chance to pull off wet weather. A few lingering light showers may redevelop between 4pm & 6pm.

As for rain totals? Not much to look forward to, or to help with dry conditions across the Brazos Valley.

Generally less than a tenth of an inch is expected in gauges across the Brazos Valley. Localized 1/10" to 1/4" totals are not out of the question; that will be the exception rather than the rule.

Overall, this is a not expected to be a significant rain event by any means. Just enough to bring a soggy feel to the start of the weekend.

Sunshine finds a way back on Sunday. Breezy north winds bring afternoon highs to the mid-60s. A reinforcing cold front drops thermometers to the upper 50s & low 60s by Monday.
