FORECAST: After cloudy, wet Saturday, a warm Super Bowl Sunday


Austinites should prepare for a cloudy Saturday with chances of rain, but the weather will warm up and dry out for a spring-like Super Bowl Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday will be cloudy with a 30 percent chance of rain, mostly before noon, the service said. The day will bring a high near 61.

Until 10 a.m., most of South Central Texas will see light showers that will move to the east around 25 mph, the service said. Rainfall will generally remain at or below a tenth of an inch. The weather service warns that roads may be slick and drivers should use caution.

Saturday night will be mostly cloudy with a low around 51.

Sunday is the day to look forward to. But fog will moves in around 2 a.m. and roll out by 10 a.m., the weather service said. Just in time for the Super Bowl, the day will be sunny with a high near 77. That night will bring increasing clouds with a low around 50.
