TEXAS, USA — The KVUE Weather Team is tracking an incoming cold front that could bring impacts to your weekend. The front is expected to arrive late Saturday and spark up scattered showers and the possibility of a few strong storms Saturday night through Sunday morning.

Threats

The evening update from the Storm Prediction Center has reduced the area of concern for severe weather down to the Coastal Plains for Saturday night. This area under a "marginal" risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather. The main concerns will be damaging wind gusts, small hail and the possibility of a weak isolated tornado. Scattered showers and storms will still be possible for other areas across Central Texas, but the main concerns will be east of Interstate 35.

Timeline

Saturday is expected to start off mostly cloudy, with some patches of fog or drizzle possible during the early morning. It'll also be quite warm and muggy with temperatures already well above the average high of 65 degrees. A stout southerly flow will also be in place, with the frontal boundary still well off to our west at that point.

We'll monitor a small chance for isolated showers during the day, but most will remain dry during this time. We'll remain warm as highs look to be in the upper 70s and possibly even 80 if we get more sunshine.

As we hit nightfall on Saturday, we're looking at a timeline of roughly 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. when we'll get the first bit of the activity in the Hill Country, with the line of storms arriving along the Interstate 35 corridor by around 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.

During the overnight hours, showers will grow more widespread as the front moves through the region. We expect the last little bit of storms to push out of the Coastal Plains, with drier and slightly cooler conditions for Sunday morning as you head to brunch or your church services.

Highs on Sunday should still get to the lower 70s before a rebound for Monday into the upper 70s. The next best rain chance doesn't arrive until Tuesday with our next cold front. Stick with KVUE for the latest on this developing forecast.
