48-Hour Forecast for Bryan/College Station

Few Showers Possible for Thanksgiving....Wet & Cold Weekend

Generally cloudy skies, unseasonably mild temperatures, and a breezy southeast wind will carry us through our Thanksgiving plans & Friday shopping sprees. Spotty, passing showers can't / won't be ruled out at times -- but nothing to cancel or slow down plans for. That rain chance will get a boost by Friday evening...

Our next, strong cold front of the season is slowly sagging south -- expected in the Panhandle by sunset Thursday, West / North / Central Texas Friday, and the Brazos Valley very early Saturday. Temperatures are expected to fall to the 40s at night, and only rebound to the 50s by afternoon -- alongside blustery north winds. Rain chance will get a boost Friday evening / overnight. Light, scattered rain is possible Saturday, followed by a widespread light to moderate rain chance through the first half of Sunday. 1" to 3" of rain is possible in the Brazos Valley through Sunday evening.

Traveling around the state:
Houston: Headed to Houston / south for the holidays? Things look quiet to start. Thanksgiving brings some hit/miss showers, especially in the afternoon. The better chance for thunderstorms (some with heavy rain) will come toward the end of your weekend plans, or if you're headed back to the Brazos Valley on Sunday.

Dallas/East Texas: Rain chances begin really pick up Thanksgiving Thursday. Heavy rain and flooding will be a possibility through the entire weekend from Waco northward -- 3" - 7" of rain is possible by Sunday. Either way, expect the possibility of steady rain on your trip back to the Brazos Valley.

West Texas / Panhandle: West Texas will be an area to watch starting Friday. The highest possibility of wintry weather will be farther north, across the Panhandle and High Plains. As of right now, A cold rain is in the forecast for Midland, Odessa, Abilene -- although keep an eye on the forecast. Like all across the state, plan for a soggy commute back to the Brazos Valley.
