An area of low pressure will be pushing east across the country over the weekend. Moisture streaming north out of the Gulf will trigger off and on rain showers through the day Saturday. While the entire day won’t be wet, make sure you have an indoor option for any outdoor plans Saturday.

A cold front will sweep through late Saturday into early Sunday morning. This will allow for a drier second half of the weekend. Temperatures will also stay cool through the weekend with the clouds and rain on Saturday and the passing front for Sunday.

We stay cooler than normal into next week as yet another rain maker and cold front moves through the area during mid-week. Tuesday rain will be likely. It’s too early to tell if severe weather will be an issue. Once again temperatures will take a slight dip to end next week.
