With all of the rain that fell, New Years Eve actually pulled off the single wettest day in Bryan-College Station for the year! Additional stats on how we measured up in the 2020 rainfall department can be found here.

A warming trend takes us through the upcoming weekend as we watch the sunshine move back in. We’ll look to keep things quiet until a southeasterly breeze returns next week and brings in just enough moisture to spark up a few rain chances ahead of our next system midweek.
