From Sean Bellafiore:
After a dry stretch of days, rain chances have returned to the forecast Friday through the upcoming weekend. Although rain chances are highest Friday, not all of Central Texas will see rain. Overnight lows fall into the low and middle 70s with mostly clear skies becoming partly cloudy by daybreak. Afternoon highs Friday struggle some, reaching the upper 80s and lower 90s with partly cloudy skies above.
Rain should hold for until the afternoon hours Friday with the greatest rain chance near and east of I-35. Any showers and thunderstorms that form may contain brief heavy downpours or frequent lightning. Severe weather is not in the forecast tomorrow afternoon. Because showers and thunderstorms will be diurnally driven, coverage of rain should wane as the sun sets. Still, a few showers or stray thunderstorms may impact a few Friday Night Football games.
Rain chances go from 50% Friday down to 20% Saturday & Sunday as an upper low over South Texas cuts off the flow of moisture into our area. Atmospheric lift will be weak, so showers and thunderstorms will struggle to get going. Most areas of Central Texas should stay dry as highs climb into the lower 90s.
Rain chances hover near 20% and 30% for the beginning of next week. Large-scale atmospheric lift will be absent Monday through Wednesday, however a few showers or rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out. A modest ridge of high pressure should build over Central Texas Wednesday through the end of next week. While this ridge won't bring scorching temperatures, highs should return back to near average (95°) by the end of next week with little to no rain expected.
