Cooler, Sunny Thursday Behind a Cold Front
Wrapping up a small (and honestly, disappointing) rain chance for the Brazos Valley. A cold front moved through Wednesday afternoon, instantly dropping temperatures ~10°. While a stray shower cannot be ruled out through 3am, the overall rain chance seems to have passed us by for this time around.
Sunshine takes over in the wake of this cold front Thursday. Highs will once again fall below the seasonal average -- we start the day in the upper 40s to low 50s and round it out in the comfortable mid-70s. As a south wind returns ahead of the weekend, scattered high & mid-level clouds are set to return by Friday afternoon as highs trend back to the seasonable low 80s by Saturday. Quiet stretch of weather (with only a small, isolated rain chance Saturday afternoon) before the potential for daily rain and thunderstorms moves in next week.
Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance at light rain through 3am. Clearing by sunrise. Low: 50. Wind: NNW 5-10 mph.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. High: 75. Wind: NNW 5-10 mph, with gusts to 15 mph.
Thursday Night: Mainly clear. Low: 53. Wind: N 5-10 mph.
Friday: Partly cloudy by afternoon. High: 78. Wind: N 5-10 mph
