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
After some very spring-like days across the Brazos Valley, winds will turn in, out of the north, and cooler (more seasonable) weather will return to the area on Thursday.
Rain Chance Ahead and Along the Front
Nothing overly spectacular, but we are looking at a chance for rain as we embark on the first half of our Thursday.
Not much in the way of a "change of pace" when you first step out the door on Thursday. Morning temperatures in the mild, mid-60s will be greeted with overcast skies and a humid feeling to the air.
By mid-afternoon, we'll look for temperatures to climb to the mid-70s around / shortly after lunchtime (more on that below).
Along and ahead of our approaching cold front, we'll call for a 30% chance of scattered showers / isolated rumbles of thunder.
Below is a look at the PinPoint Computer Forecast Model for when / where rain may try to fall. We'll look for the best window to find rain between 10am and 3pm.
While the chance for rain is there, we are expecting quick moving showers (if they can form) and should thunder manage to rumble from those clouds, severe weather is not anticipated.
Bye-Bye Spring -- Hello February
As mentioned above, temperatures are going to climb their way into the upper 70s / low 80s just before our incoming cold front blows into the Brazos Valley. While sunshine will attempt to break out between overcast skies, it will be a breezy to gusty south / southwest wind that helps move those temperatures upwards.
Once that front blows in -- and rain chances get shoved south of the area -- we'll find temperatures steadily falling by late afternoon. Breezy to gusty north to northwest winds will help bring things down to the low / mid 60s by the 4pm to 5pm hour.
Heading out Thursday evening? Time to grab those light jackets and sweaters once again. We'll find our thermometers dropping into the upper 50s shortly after sunset.
Seasonable & Sunnier Friday
All in all -- this won't be a big blast of cold air sweeping into the Brazos Valley. We're looking for more of a reality check as temperatures get pushed back to more "typical" levels for this time of the year.
By Saturday, we'll already look for southerly winds to return and afternoon highs to creep their way into the 70s once again.
Colder Weather Ahead?
Another cold front looks to arrive in our backyard by the beginning of next week. That front may be on the cool side, with highs struggling to push through the 50s. Stand by for more to come...
