A weak cold front pushed through the Brazos Valley Wednesday morning, bringing temperatures down a bit from that near-80° weather we experienced recently. We'll look for a modest warm-up heading towards the first day of Spring.
Cold Front -- No Problem
North winds turned back into the Brazos Valley Wednesday -- dropping temperatures a bit from those Tuesday "above-normal" highs.
What started as a day with scattered clouds, a brisk north wind, and temperatures in the 40s and 50s, turned to sunshine and mild conditions as highs topped off in the 60s and low 70s.
We'll look for a cool night ahead -- most of the Brazos Valley should wake up to the low / mid 40s. High-to-mid level clouds graced our skies around sunset -- but they will clear the area shortly after the midnight hour.
Spring Has Sprung
Normal high for March 20th: 73°
Forecast High for March 20th, 2014: 73°
We'll call that good enough, yes?
High pressure will settle over our backyard by Thursday morning -- aiding in that chilly start to the day. As it slides to the east of Texas by the afternoon hours, a gentle south / southeast wind returns alongside bright sunshine. Afternoon highs are slated to make the low / mid 70s.
Spring officially begins at 11:57am Thursday. Be sure to set your alarm and give yourself a pat on the back -- you made it through Winter!
Spring Doesn't Mean Cold is Gone
We'll get a few days of warm, seasonable weather under our belt before Mother Nature pulls the rug out from under us.
We're still tweaking a weekend cold front that contains a cold front, chilly air, overcast skies, a change for widespread (much needed) rainfall, and overall "unseasonable" weather.
