FORECAST: Saturday to be cold, bring 100 percent chance of rain


There’s a 20 percent chance Saturday morning will bring rain, but find your umbrella by noon, when the National Weather Service says the chance becomes 100 percent.

The high Saturday will be near 50. The service expects new precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch are possible but no major flooding is expected. The heaviest rainfall is expected east of the Interstate 35 corridor.

Rain will continue into Saturday night (100 percent chance) and possibly bring a thunderstorm before midnight. Watch out for patchy fog after 3 a.m. The low Saturday night will be around 43.

The service expects new precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch and higher amounts if there are thunderstorms.

Sunday brings a bit of relief. There will be areas of fog before 10 a.m., but otherwise, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 66, the service said.

Highs on Sunday afternoon will likely rebound into the 60s for most locations, the service said. Sunday night will be mostly cloudy with a low around 52.

More rain is expected early next week, the service said.
