Last weekend a strong cold front made its way into the Brazos Valley bringing down our temperatures drastically. We experienced temperatures in the upper 40s / low 50s across the region on Monday morning. That felt better than the early part of the week where high temperatures topped off in the 90s. A high pressure system, that is currently sitting over us, will continue moving off to the northeast which will return our winds from the south.
This southerly inflow of air will drag in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico as well as warm our high
temperatures back to the mid / upper 80s. Moist air holds in more heat, so the overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 60s will make a return in the latter part of the work week. The inflow of moist air, along with a deep trough coming in from the northwest, will give us a chance of rain going into the weekend and continue into the early part of the work week.
Another cold front will approach the State of Texas. Don't get too exicted, it'll turn stationary over North Texas as winds from the Gulf push it back to the north. However there is another cold front that will make its way into the Brazos Valley on Tuesday which will further increase our chances of rain along the frontal boundary.
What should you take away from this? Hang up the jackets and pull out the shorts again because temperatures will be on the rise for the rest of the week. For the weekend, keep the umbrella handy as rain chances will begin to increase starting on Saturday.
