First Alert Weather Day: Expect showers, isolated storms this weekend


Showers will be developing through Friday evening and increase overnight into Saturday morning.

Expect scattered showers and a few isolated thundershowers to develop southwest of East Texas and spread northward after midnight Friday night into Saturday. Rain could be heavy at times in a few areas Saturday morning.  The heaviest rain will likely move east of East Texas by Saturday afternoon, with just patchy drizzle through Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

A strong cold front arrives overnight Saturday and temperatures will drop quickly behind the front to near freezing after midnight. Any drizzle in areas along and north of I-20 could become freezing drizzle during the early morning hours Sunday and could last until late morning. Accumulations should be very minimal, but drivers early Sunday morning should exercise extreme caution on bridges and overpasses.

It will be cold and breezy Sunday afternoon, but temperatures will make it above freezing which will end any threat for continued freezing drizzle. No impacts are expected for the Monday morning commute.
