Here comes the sun! Perfect weekend weather comes to West Texas

Incoming high-pressure delivers sunny skies and warm temperatures

SAN ANGELO, Texas — Happy Friday, West Texas! Let’s get into this weekend because it is going to be a beautiful one. A huge high-pressure ridge will be moving into Texas, which means the sun will be shining consistently and there will barely be a cloud in the sky (until Sunday evening, that is).

Friday was a nice day overall with abundant sunshine as well, but temperatures were a little chilly because of the cold front that passed the night before. Nighttime lows will get into the 20s for most, so it’ll still be cold when you’re waking up in the morning.

Saturday will quickly warm up as highs will get into the mid-60s, making it a great opportunity to do whatever, whether you hang out around the house or head into town. One thing to mention is that it will be a very dry day, with humidity as low as 5%. While there may not be any burn bans or fire weather warnings, still be extremely careful if you decide to get a fire going.

Sunday will be even warmer, possibly hitting 70 degrees! This is unseasonably warm, and we haven’t seen conditions like this in a while, so get outside. Hiking is a great activity if you’re looking for a wholesome Sunday Funday.

Once we reach Sunday evening, there will be a low-pressure system approaching from the southwest US that could bring rain chances as soon as 6 p.m., although models don’t show the system arriving until about midnight. The rain will linger until about noon on Monday, so expect light showers when you’re waking up and heading to work Monday morning.

On the bright side, Monday and Tuesday will also both be in the 70s, so you’ll have a great start to your work week before more precipitation makes its way to West Texas.
