Temperatures tonight will be even more frigid than what we experienced last night, as more cold air moves in from the North. Lighter winds and lower dewpoints will allow temperatures to fall faster and farther once the sun sets, and with mostly clear skies expected tonight, we won't have anything to prevent our overnight lows from bottoming out across the region.
The arctic blast brought very cold, but not record-setting lows to the Brazos Valley. In BCS, we did set a new record low maximum, meaning today we saw the lowest high temperature ever for this date at 31. Tonight looks as though we may see several record lows broken or tied in the area. Several locations across the area could tie or even set new records for low temperatures, with temperatures falling into the teens for most of us.
Here's a few of the locations in our area that may set a record tonight:
Bryan-College Station: Old record 19.
Conroe: Old record 18.
Hearne: Old record 16.
Caldwell: Old record 16.
We're expecting these as well as other locations across the Brazos Valley to either tie or break the old records. Temperatures are forecast to drop into the mid and upper teens, with our colder outlying areas possibly dropping to near 10!
