Monday Evening Weather Blog (3/10): Small Hiccups for your Spring Break Forecast

A sunny and warm Monday across the Brazos Valley will turn to a night with the chance of a few spotty showers. After a brief shot at rain -- sunshine & warmer weather return. Enjoy it. Our next cold front is expected to tumble temperatures back, once again.

Feeling the Spring-like Love

Bad News: You lost an hour of sleep yesterday, thanks to Daylight Saving Time starting up.

Good News: Our "average" high for this time of the year has now moved to 70°!

Better News: We managed to reach highs in the low 70s this Monday afternoon....Tuesday looks to bring us even closer to 80°!

Get it while you can -- another cold front is already on the schedule for the middle of the week. While it won't be a major blast of winter, it will have you reaching for jackets and wind breakers...yet again.

First though...

Slight Chance of Overnight Rain (Monday Night / Tuesday Morning)

The rain / cold front from this past weekend was pushed in by a large upper-level system moving close to Texas. From that same weather maker came a trough of low pressure, that hung to the west and southwest of Texas.

As that upper-low swings over South Texas, and into the Gulf of Mexico, we'll look for a chance of spotty showers and rain across the Brazos Valley between 10pm Monday and 8am Tuesday.

The better bet to find rain will be along the immediate Texas Coast -- however, a few pockets of rain could drift further north and move from west to east across our backyard.

We'll look for a 30% chance of rain -- along with a mild night in the 50s / a chance for patchy fog by sunrise Tuesday.

One More Warm Day -- then Windy & Colder

After a cloudy / foggy start to Tuesday morning, how about a sunny finish with highs in the upper 70s / possibly pushing 80°?

Sounds pretty good -- especially for all of those Spring Breakers out there.

Be sure to get out and get it while you can on Tuesday:

By Wednesday morning, our next cold front arrives in the Brazos Valley. Morning clouds will turn to afternoon sunshine, but don't let it deceive you. We'll look for blustery north winds to blow through at 20-25mph, with gusts between 30mph & 35mph.

Sunshine will try to do all that it can -- but we'll be lucky to reach 60° Wednesday.

By Thursday, temperatures are still in the 60s, but the wind will die down making for another mild, sunny day to get out and enjoy.
