We’ve seen the heaviest rain today along a boundary that is currently south of us and will continue to be the focal point of more showers and storms tonight. It will slowly start to push a little more north and that may lead to us having some rain chances in Central Texas. Best location(s) for stronger storms should stay to our south but areas around Bryan/College Station and east of I-35 have the best chance of some storms with some locally heavy rain, lighting, and some gusty winds. Rain should come to and end, for a short break, after midnight and for tomorrow morning. Some fog will be possible in the southeast tomorrow morning, but will dissipate quickly. Otherwise, expect cloudy skies and overnight lows in the 50s and 60s.

Over the weekend, our upper-level low, the one that’s kept the rain around, will be on the move... but it moves overhead and that will increase rain chances a bit for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with Saturday afternoon looking the wettest. If you’re tracking rain on the radar over the next few days, the general motion will be that storms will develop to the southeast and drift to the northwest - that’s the motion around the low. Temperatures remain below normal, by quite a bit... morning lows will be in the 60s, while afternoon highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s throughout the weekend.

Rain chances start to shift a bit more east on Sunday, but we have a few more chances for rain early next week. After that, high pressure builds for the back-half of next week and that means the rain chances get shut off and temperatures start to climb... we’re talking upper 80s and possibly into the low 90s by the end of next week.
