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
Another round of FREEZE WARNINGS have been issued for parts of the Brazos Valley, effective Thursday morning from 3am to 8am.
Grab the Blanket -- Another Unseasonably Cold Night Ahead
A pretty simple equation as to why temperatures will be dropping off after sunset, once again, this evening:
After many locations managed to reach 32° or lower by Wednesday morning (more information here) another round of near or at freezing conditions will be possible by daybreak Thursday.
That said, a handful of locations just missed the freeze mark by a few degrees this morning, College Station included. (Fun Fact: Bryan recorded 32° at Coulter Field early Wednesday. For the First Freeze to count for Bryan / College Station, 32° or lower has to be reached at Easterwood Airport)
With another light freeze possible, the National Weather Service has once again issued a FREEZE WARNING for a majority of the Brazos Valley:
Milam, Robertson, and Leon Counties could drop to or below freezing by Thursday morning as well. Since freezing temperatures were already achieved there, for most of that area, a freeze warning will no longer be issued this season.
Warm-Up on the Way
We'll shift gears from talking freezing temperatures to rain and highs around 80° for the weekend.
Riding the roller coaster as moisture returns to the area on Thursday. Increasing clouds will lead to a chance for scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder Friday morning through Sunday afternoon.
By Monday, we are on the down swing again, as our next cold front blows in another shot of cold, Canadian air. If we miss hitting our First Freeze in B/CS Thursday, looks like we'll have another crack at it by the middle of next week.
