Rain chances through Saturday, then sunshine and dry Sunday
ABILENE, Texas - The upper level and surface low pressure systems that have been centered and spinning over the state of Texas in the past 24 hours has dropped an impressive amount of rainfall over areas that did not need much more rain.
That being said, over the next 24 hours, we will be seeing this system spinning itself out as it drifts southward towards Corpus Christi. This will finally bring an end to all of the rain activity.
For today, on and off showers are to be expected again throughout the day. Some rainfall could be heavy at times. We should stay under mostly cloudy skies which with that and rain cooled air, high temperatures will top back out in the 70s. Winds will be from the north-northeast at 5 to 15 mph.
Tonight, rain activity should taper off and become isolated. We will continue with mostly cloudy skies with lows dropping into the 60s. Winds will stay out of the north-northeast at 5 to 10 mph.
By Saturday, the low pressure system drops southward, allowing a cold front from a low pressure system moving across the Great Lakes to move through the area. This front may allow for some additional isolated thundershowers to pop up on Saturday afternoon. This will be last day that we see rain for several days.
We should have partly sunny skies for Saturday with temperatures reaching the 80s.
After the frontal boundary passes through on Saturday, the weather pattern puts a ridge of high pressure over the south central part of the United States. This feature looks to park itself for several days in this location.
That means we will be going to full sunshine for Sunday and this trend will go into next week and lasting through at least Friday.
High temperatures with the sunny skies will top out in the upper 80s and lower 90s each day from Sunday to Friday.
Have a great weekend, folks!
