Over the past two weeks its seemed like primarily things have been the same. Sunny, highs in the 70s and relatively dry. Overall...pleasant, right? Well, hold on tight because it looks like a little fall weather could be shooting our way.
Before we start...don't get overly excited just quite yet. Everything we are talking about here is still a good five to seven days out, so details are likely to change.
Coming into the Pacific Northwest ,as we speak, is the beginnings of our next upper-level trough...eventually, the system that will be responsible for our next cold front. While it looks to be slow moving, models have been somewhat consistent in pushing said front though the Brazos Valley around the Sunday afternoon / Monday morning time frame. Now, depending on how much moisture can return ahead of the front (which looks pretty decent right now) we'll keep the rain chances going on the slight end (30-40%) for that same window. But that's not the exciting part...that would be what happens after the front pushes through....
...It looks like enough cool air will swing down from Canada that highs starting Monday will only be topping of in the very fall-ish 60s with overnight lows dropping into the mid-to-(possibly even)-lower 40s at night. Plainly put...very chilly mornings and pleasant, mild afternoons...ie football weather, Thanksgiving weather, etc. Indications are, that a cut off low will park itself over Oklahoma for a few days, and with its counter-clockwise flow, will continue to usher in that cooler, drier air until it pushes back to the northeast.
So again, we'll be checking the latest while hammering out the details as the days get closer...and who knows, maybe soon we'll all be in for some good ol' fashion leaf-pile jumping in the near future as they begin to fall off the trees! Until then...sit back, relax and enjoy these sunny, warm afternoons.
