HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — It has been awhile since deep south Texas received a dose of rain. The most-recent drought monitor shows dry and moderate drought conditions creeping into northern parts of the Rio Grande Valley.

However, a cold front will give us some rain and even a chance for a storm on Sunday and Monday.

The latest weather models shows the chance for showers mainly in the lower valley and along the coast. Timing of the arrival of the cold front is expected to be Sunday morning.

Rain totals are predicted to remain below half an inch, according to the Weather Prediction Center.

High temperatures for the beginning of next week will drop into the mid-70’s with overnight and morning lows in the 50’s. You might need a sweater heading out the door next week.

The latest precipitation outlook from the Climate Prediction Center shows that south Texas including the Rio Grande Valley will remain abnormally dry through the end of the month with temperatures remaining abnormally warm through the next two weeks.
