Sunnier, Warmer Days Ahead
A stormy, rainy, and (for some) destructive Monday across the Brazos Valley. Calmer days are ahead as this big upper level system moves east of the area. Overnight -- saturated grounds and moisture still in place will lead to low clouds (at the least) to areas of fog (at the most) Tuesday morning. Regardless, that all lifts by mid-morning bringing sunshine back for the afternoon hours.
A breezy / gusty northwest wind arrives Tuesday, but it won't usher in cooler air...rather drier air. Afternoon highs for the next few days trend toward 80° ahead of the next cold front to reach the Brazos Valley Friday. That northerly wind shift actually brings a cool down -- weekend morning 40s and Saturday afternoon 60s are in store for outdoor plans.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy. Morning fog possible. Low: 54. Wind: S becoming WNW 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy early. Afternoon sunshine. High: 75. Wind: NW 10-15 mph, with higher gusts.
Tuesday Night: Mainly clear. Low: 51. Wind: NNW 5-10 mph.
Wednesday: Sunny. High: 78. Wind: NNW 5-10 mph.
