Central Texas weather: Sunshine Friday; rain chances increase this weekend

Today will be the brightest and driest day we will see in the next week.

Enjoy the rays of sunshine today but you still need to layer up.

We will go from the 30s this morning to near 60 later today.

The clouds really start to take over tonight with some late night drizzle and fog.

It will warm up a little this weekend but showers and storms are in the forecast. 

In fact we will slide into a very rainy and cold weather pattern next week.
