A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect for most of the Brazos Valley Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. After a frigid start to the middle of the week, a warming trend takes the Brazos Valley over.
Hard Freeze Warning
The Houston / Galveston National Weather Service has issued a HARD FREEZE WARNING, for the portions of the Brazos Valley that it monitors.
Milam, Robertson, Leon, and Lee Counties are not currently under a Hard Freeze Warning -- but should expect one tonight, as well.
Why are northern and western counties included in the warning? Best answer is because those areas of the Brazos Valley have already dipped to a hard freeze multiple times this season. Those under the warning have only had a few hard freeze situations occur.
Regardless of a warning or not -- it will be a downright, cold / frigid morning across the region.
Expect lows to fall to the teens & low 20s by sunrise Wednesday.
When it is all said and done, we expect temperatures to fall at or below 32° for 10-15 hours across the Brazos Valley:
Sunshine Returns...but not Necessarily Warmth
We'll look for scattered morning clouds to turn into mid-morning and afternoon sunshine.
Temperatures will do better than Tuesday -- however, our afternoon highs are expected to run closer to our normal low for this time in January vs. the normal high:
Spring-like Temperatures and Rain Chances Return Later This Week
How about a rebound to the 70s?
Hope you are up for it...because that is where we are headed by the end of this week / start of the weekend.
As southerly winds push in higher moisture values (along with those warmer temperatures) we'll look for a few scattered showers to dance across the area.
By Sunday, our rain chances start to fall off -- for a day -- behind a front poised to bring our afternoon highs back into the 50s.
We're rebounding right back up, though...70s are back by Tuesday along with -- what looks like a decent chance of rain. More on that later in the the week...
