Light Freeze / Frost For Many Overnight
A cooler day for the Brazos Valley behind our latest cold front. Calm wind, clear skies, and a very dry air mass in place means the Brazos Valley is in for a chill tonight. Lows fall to the low / mid 30s by sunrise Wednesday. Many will fall to a light freeze, most wake to a frost as we kick off the day. Filtered sunlight as high clouds stream back overhead -- afternoon highs are set for the seasonable low to mid 60s.
Another cold front slides in by Thursday morning, but the bigger impacts will not be felt until Friday. Rain is expected south of the area to wrap up the work week, mostly cloudy skies and a breezy north wind look to hold temperatures to the 50s. As an upper low spends the weekend crossing the State of Texas, a few light showers are possible Saturday (highs still in the 50s), with the best chance of rain arriving Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday. As long as the trend to clear the clouds & rain holds Sunday, highs should return to the 60s to wrap up the weekend.
Tuesday Night: Mostly clear. Frost expected. Low: 35. Wind: NW becoming SW 0-5 mph.
Wednesday: High clouds / partly cloudy. High: 64. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 43. Wind: W 5-10 mph.
Thursday: Partly cloudy. High: 62. Wind: N 5-15 mph.
