Saturday: Windy, Cooler Weather Arrives
After several unseasonably warm days in the Brazos Valley, we flip the script to unseasonably cool conditions. After Saturday's warm start, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 70s / low 80s by early afternoon. A cold front arrives between 11am & 3pm -- sweeping north to south -- kicking up a windy / gusty north wind & allowing cooler air to spill in. While the chance is lackluster, cannot completely rule out a stray shower as that north wind turns in.
Temperatures tumble on those brisk north winds to the low / mid 40s Sunday morning. Even though sunshine & blue skies are overhead, temperatures will only reach the low 60s by the afternoon hours. A breezy north wind and low humidity means the fire danger will be elevated & open flames / outdoor burning should be left out of plans. Cooler weather kicks off Thanksgiving week before a small warm up ahead of a mid-week front, bringing cool & festive weather for Thanksgiving Day.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy morning, sunny by late afternoon. 10% chance of rain 11am - 2pm. High: 82, falling to the 60s before sunset. Wind: SW / N 15-20 mph, gusts upwards of 30mph.
Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 45. Wind: NNE 10-15 mph.
Sunday: Sunny. High: 63. Wind: NNE 10-15 mph.
Sunday Night: Clear. Low: 40. Wind: E 0-5 mph.
