Another Damp Weekend In Store for Much of TX

Chilly weather continues for the 6th day in a row across the Lone Star state (just as we expected 10 days ago), with highs struggling to get out of the 40s across most of the central and eastern two-thirds of the state again today.

Winds just above the surface have already turned out of the Southeast across most of the state, which is gradually bringing moisture back up from the Gulf of Mexico.  As a result, areas of fog and drizzle can be expected today across particularly southcentral & southeast Texas.  Some patches of light rain will also be possible by afternoon, but rainfall amounts today are expected to be light:

Rainfall rates and coverage will increase on Saturday, particularly across southcentral portions of the state, as an upper level weather disturbance slowly moves in from the West/Southwest:

This disturbance will cause rainfall coverage and rates to increase and spread into Northern and Eastern portions of the state on Sunday:
