I said, Brrrrrrrr. It's cold out there. There must be high pressure in the atmosphere.
That was the calling this morning with temperatures falling anywhere from the upper 20s to low 40s across the Brazos Valley this morning.

So get ready, Friends. We'll be on the warmer side of things heading into the last month of the year. Missing that Holiday chill? No worries, it looks like another stout cold front is on schedule for the first part of next week -- thunderstorm chances and another decent cool down should be headed our way by the middle of the first full week of December.
