Storm chance tonight, sunnier Saturday | Central Texas Forecast

Strong storms in our eastern zones give way to clearer skies late tonight.

TEXAS, USA — We've been mostly dry so far Saturday after we were mostly dry most of yesterday, save for that storm that passed through Ellis and Navarro counties that produced hail in the Italy area that was reported as being teacup sized. We'll drop to the upper 40s to low 50s tonight as that area of high pressure takes hold over our region.

With winds shifting and becoming more southerly through the day Sunday, we expect temperatures to be slightly warmer with comfortable humidity still in place. Highs then will get to the mid 80s with light winds, so Sunday sounds like a great family day or a nice layout by the pool if you ask us.

We'll keep those 80s for Monday, but we'll add a few more of those clouds as moisture builds in as a frontal boundary approaches from the north. That frontal boundary will then stall out, which will mean a warm air mass will clash with the cooler air mass from the north, and this will lead to some really good chances of showers and thunderstorms which, with total rainfall totals after all of this possibly reaching an inch and a half, could make as much of a dent in our drought situation as the baseball-sized hail along the Alabama Gulf Coast made dents in cars. ~Meteorologist Jordan Darensbourg
