Keep those long sleeves handy -- we’ll need them for a couple more mornings as we head into this new week. Monday brings another chill in the air as the day starts in the low-to-mid 40s at sunrise. More scattered, mid-level cloud cover is expected to filter the sunlight as afternoon highs return to the mid-70s. After a cool start Tuesday, sunshine and a west-southwest wind will drive highs back to the low 80s. Feeling more-like spring, right? Another cold front arrives Tuesday night -- it slides through dry for the Brazos Valley but could bring snow as far south as Oklahoma! Morning upper 30s / low 40s are in the cards for Wednesday with one last afternoon in the 60s for the week. Drier air and a breezy wind will lead to an elevated-to-high fire danger Wednesday.

The effects of this next front wear off quickly as the next possible rain maker dives south through the Western US. Humid air is quick to return Friday, allowing for a chance for afternoon and evening rain and thunderstorms. Severe weather threat, at this time, is low but not totally zero. One aspect of this forecast that we will need to monitor: How long the rain will linger, and where the front stalls Saturday. If that stopping point is in the Brazos Valley, it could lead to training, heavy rainfall. Not set in stone, but again..something to monitor these next few days. That front gets a final push by the end of the weekend -- but this time temperatures only fall to the low 80s behind that north wind shift.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 46. Wind: E 0-5 mph.

Monday: Sun / cloud mix by midday. High: 74. Wind: E 5-10 mph.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 52. Wind: E 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny. High: 82. Wind: WSW 5-15 mph, gusting 20 mph.
