Warmer, Breezy Tuesday...Cold Front Scheduled for Early Wednesday
As we close out the day, a gem of a Monday was in place for the Brazos Valley. We'll continue with a quiet week of weather, with the focus mainly on temperatures.
Tuesday brings a mix of sun & high clouds overhead -- breezy south winds gusting upwards of 25mph will help nudge afternoon highs to / just at the 80° mark. Too warm for you? Stand by...next cold front is scheduled to arrive ahead of sunrise Wednesday. A quick, 20% chance of rain moves through between midnight & 5am Wednesday as northerly winds take over. Breezy north to northwest winds knock afternoon highs down to the low / mid 60s for midweek.
Even with sunshine taking over again Thursday & Friday, we'll hold to a seasonable or slightly cooler than average trend heading into the weekend. Overnight 30s, afternoon upper 50s / low 60s becomes the norm as we close out the week & start the weekend. Another weak cold front Friday into Saturday will be the insurance for keeping a not-too-harsh winter feel around.
