Weekend Weather Forecast

It is the final weekend to walk the trails of the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival! We could be dodging a few showers Saturday morning, but coverage is pretty low. (30%)

Clouds will start to break up by the afternoon, but strong northwest winds will keep it feeling quite cool! Highs will stay in the 60s.

Sunday is the pick day of the weekend! Highs soar into the upper 70s after a cool start. Mostly sunny skies and lighter winds will take over, too.
