Forecast (10/21): Another Shot of Fall Weather Arrives in the Brazos Valley

"Hot" on the heels of a recent, weekend cold front, that dropped temperatures in the Brazos Valley, another shot of cooler and dry air is in store for the area.

As of 5pm Monday evening, our latest cold front was located across North and Central Texas -- with a northerly wind shift knocking on the door of Milam, Robertson, and Leon Counties by 6pm to 7pm.

While this cold front won't be a big push of cold air for the Brazos Valley, it will reinforce "cooler than normal" conditions for the area as we continue through the week.

Brief Rain / Storm Chance

As winds kick back around from the north, a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible -- moving from the northwest to the southeast, towards East Texas and the Upper Texas Coast.

Thunderstorms are not anticipated to become severe -- however, a few storms could be on the strong side with lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds in excess of 30mph possible.

Rain window for the Brazos Valley will be between 6pm Monday (10/21) -- northern counties -- and 1am Tuesday (10/22) -- southern counties.

A Fall Feeling That Will Stick Around

Once this cold front passes, an upper level trough of low pressure will set up shop over the Eastern Untied States, with a ridge of high pressure lodged over the Western side of the country.

That will leave a northwest flow in place -- which is essentially air conditioning for the Brazos Valley. A series of weak cold fronts will work through that flow as the week progresses, keeping sunny skies and "cooler than normal" conditions in place leading into the weekend.
