Thursday Evening Weather Blog (11/14): From a Freeze to Spring-Like

After two mornings of near, at, or below freezing temperatures in the Brazos Valley, we shift our focus to a warm up over the weekend. Temperatures will rebound all the way into the low 80s before taking a nose-dive once again.

Most of the Brazos Valley dropped to another freeze this morning -- some outlying areas even fell into the 20s, with heavy frost developing. Bryan, once again, made it to 32° as well.

College Station -- at Easterwood Airport -- still could not manage to fall to the freeze mark. Therefore, we'll have to wait to get our official first freeze of the season.

Thursday Morning Lows

Digging out of the Freezer

After a freezing start, temperatures clawed their way into the low 60s this afternoon. Still cooler than "normal" for this time of the year -- but progress towards seasonable.

Temperatures in the Brazos Valley have held steady in the low / mid 50s since sunset Thursday. They'll continue to level out over night as warmer air, scattered clouds, and a slight light rain chance keeps the air temperature stagnant.

By Friday afternoon, clouds start to break up after a few morning showers (20% chance), and afternoon highs find themselves back where they belong for this time in November.

We won't stop there -- overnight lows are expected to only dip into the UNSEASONABLE 60s & near 70s while afternoon highs could touch the low 80s on Sunday.

Scattered Rain Chance Returns

No need to cancel your weekend plans -- but you may want to snag an umbrella.

Starting overnight Thursday into early Friday morning, a few small showers will try to drift west to east across the Brazos Valley. Due to a relatively dry air mass, most of the rain that attempts to fall will likely evaporate before reaching the ground.

That said, a 20% chance for light rain will run through your Friday morning commute

We'll keep that scattered rain chance -- and maybe even a rumble of thunder -- running Saturday and Sunday (20% both days). That could leave you scampering indoors for a bit, but we are not looking for a weekend wash out.

Next Cold Front

Good news for all you Fall Weather Lovers: Another front arrives by Monday morning, helping to bring back that cool air to the Brazos Valley.

Good news for all you Cold Weather Haters: Computer models have backed off bringing another stout cold blast into the Brazos Valley. As of now, we are looking for lows in the 40s and highs in the cool 60s.
