September closing out with a much bigger bang than it came in with!
A "cold" front of sorts came sliding into the Brazos Valley late Saturday / through Sunday morning and managed to fire up & push a whole lot of rain through the area with it.
As we wrap up this latest event -- here's some of the impressive totals that were emailed, tweeted, sent in, etc to the PinPoint Weather Center:
September at a Glance
We're putting the finishing touches on the month -- so let's take a second to look back at September for what it was:
Drying Out a Bit...but Still a Shot at Rain
We found a good amount of mid / upper level dry air sitting over the Brazos Valley today, in the wake of our weekend front. That will all be changing as the front washes out and a southerly wind takes over once again.
At the surface, high pressure is in control of the Southeastern United States. That will be one helping hand in turning southerly winds back in off the Gulf at 5-10mph -- which will ultimately help push moisture back into the area.
Coming along with that moisture will be scattered showers / isolated thunderstorms that manage to roll out of the Gulf and fight to stay formed over land. We'll keep a 20% chance of a scattered downpour or two through Tuesday and Wednesday. Any rain should move by quickly -- but could drop a decent batch of rain as it slowly moves from the south to the north.
Double Your Cold Fronts & Make Them Stack
We're fresh off the heels of our latest front and we're already turning our heads towards the development of the next.
Clouds are moving inland over the Pacific Northwest as our next trough of low pressure beings to dig out across the Western United States. That will drag a cold front into the Brazos Valley (most likely) this weekend.
While we'll need to watch the details closely, this front could bring temperatures down into the 50s for lows and have afternoon highs struggling to get out of the upper 70s! More on that in Wednesday's weather blog....
