Brazos Valley Burn Bans: The following counties are under a Burn Ban: Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Leon, Madison, Milam, Robertson, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Washington
Our latest cold front has left some very unseasonably cool weather on hand, as we wrap up the work & school week. We'll watch for subtle changes to our weather as we head into the weekend.
Thursday's Regional Lows & Highs
Another Cold Night in the Works
Just like last night, evening temperatures are falling fast enough to put us back into the 40s by the time we "rise-and-shine" Friday morning.
We'll look for the Brazos Valley to fall into the low / mid 40s by sunrise Friday. To keep that trend going, many of us will find ourselves right back in the 40s on Saturday morning as well -- this time a little closer to 50°
Unseasonably Cool for Now -- "Warming" trend on the Way
Normal high for this time in November: 74°. Normal Low: 54°
We'll stay below these seasonal normals for the next 24 to 48 hours in the Brazos Valley, before running our thermometers back to where we are supposed to be this time of the year.
An increase in south to southeasterly winds over the weekend will add some slightly warmer air back into the mix. That will effectively bring our night and afternoon temperatures back to where they are supposed to be for this time of the year.
Forecast highs and lows through Monday, November 11th
Here Come the Clouds
Sunshine greeted us as we walked out on Thursday morning. During the day, high to mid-level cloud cover started working back into the Brazos Valley from the southwest.
Get used to it -- those clouds, built off Pacific moisture, will continue to stream over the Brazos Valley for the next several days.
By Saturday, a few week disturbances could try to produce light rain in the area. That said, the air at the surface is mighty dry, so any rain that attempts to fall will likely evaporate before reaching the ground.
Our next cold front looks to arrive by the middle of next week. As we get closer to that event, we could start to see a few showers develop once again, by the beginning of the week.
