This is Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton, an upper level low is still spinning over Texas; this will cause more rain to develop there and they will move our way tonight into Saturday morning. Rain looks likely once again on Saturday with the best chance in the morning through the early afternoon hours. Rain will likely taper off through the afternoon hours and for sure into the evening. Some areas could see up to 4 inches of rain by the time it ends; isolated amounts higher than that are possible. Sunday is the wildcard at this time; depending on the speed of the storm system rain may linger into Sunday.

Coming up on 7 News at Six Sports, we'll have complete high school state baseball coverage.
