DRY MORNING - For the first time this week, we don't have widespread showers and thunderstorms across the entire region. This has allowed temperatures to rise to the low to mid 50s with mostly cloudy skies. However, rain will increase this afternoon and evening, but it will be more of a light rain rather than downpours. Highs will be in the low 60s otherwise.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - Friday morning should be another dry morning with the morning low in the low 50s once again. However, widespread rain will be possible again during the afternoon and evening with highs near 60°. Rain continues through early Saturday morning, then tapers off during the afternoon. We should stay dry for most of the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Lows should be closer to 50°.
FOOTBALL WEATHER - For the high school football games tomorrow, expect the games to be played under rain for most spots. Temperatures will start in the upper 50s at kickoff, falling into the low 50s by the final whistle.
NEXT WEEK - Next week looks mostly dry with the exception of Wednesday, where a shortwave trough will move easterly, causing another round of widespread showers and thunderstorms mainly during the afternoon. Otherwise, expect cloudiness to linger early next week, with the sun coming out by the latter half of the week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - The Atlantic Basin remains very quiet, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected through the weekend.
