After an overcast weekend, sunshine made a return to the Brazos Valley Monday. North winds kept temperatures on the cool side to start the week, but we'll look for spring-like highs heading towards the first official day of the season.
Breezy to Gusty Winds
Great to have blue skies back in place -- but that sunshine couldn't overcome the breezy, cool north winds that blew across the Brazos Valley Monday.
The forecast looks for those winds to remain breezy -- but we'll watch them blow in from a different direction on Tuesday.
As another upper-level weather maker swings north of Texas by Wednesday, winds will ramp up ahead and behind the system.
On Tuesday, we'll look for a south to southwest wind -- 10-20mph, with gusts upwards of 25mph at times. Those winds and full sunshine will have afternoon highs topping off near / at 80° by the afternoon hours!
Notice there is a cold front drawn on that map? That keeps the winds breezy Wednesday, but once again they'll blow in from a cooler destination.
Wednesday brings high clouds and cooler air to the Brazos Valley. Afternoon highs will likely remain in the 60s, feeling a touch cooler thanks to that north wind at 10-15mph.
Wind Tell the Story...
No need to get down about those "cooler" mid-week highs.
We'll look for the first day of Spring (Thursday) to bring back mildly warm 70s to the area.
Just because the calendar says Spring -- doesn't mean we'll automatically look for the chilly air to shut down.
Our weekend forecast looks to hold soggy and colder changes. A cold front arriving Saturday could have temperatures steadily falling for 48 hours or so. Mix in a few rounds of *possible* widespread rain and that will only hinder any shot at a warm up.
We are going to need to iron out the details as we get closer to the weekend -- but it is a forecast to keep an eye on!
