Areas of fog led way to a beautiful (but warm) Thursday afternoon with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Heading out to find some Holiday Magic in Bryan this evening? While it doesn’t quite feel like December today, temperatures will still be pleasant, falling into the low 70s and eventually the upper 60s later this evening.

Plan to give yourself some extra time out the door Friday morning as additional areas of fog, some dense, will likely develop again by the a.m. drive. Thermometers start off in the low 60s first thing in the morning, flipping around to the unseasonably-warm upper 70s by the afternoon. A disturbance passes by throughout the day, sending additional cloud cover through the Brazos Valley sky and may try to spark up a few passing showers. The big question Friday: can the rain make it to the ground? While the upper levels of the atmosphere are capable of producing rain, any rain drops that form will likely pass through a pocket of drier air and evaporate on their journey to the surface. We’ll see if we can’t find a few isolated spots of rain that are able to survive the trip to the ground, but overall we’ll still plan for more of us than not to sit dry as we wrap up the work week.

Warmer than average temperatures remain the theme of the upcoming weekend, with lows in the 60s and highs in the upper 70s / low 80s. While not necessarily uncomfortable, it won’t be feeling like December should over the next 72 hours with highs running a good 10° - 15° above average. An isolated chance for rain sticks with us each weekend day, ahead of a slightly better chance for scattered rain by Monday as our next front approaches the area. Still some details to fine tune with next week’s weather pattern, but we’ll see if that can’t push in a quick round of seasonable air to kick start the work week.

Thursday Night: Increasing clouds with areas of fog expected. Low: 62. Wind: S 0-5 mph.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance for isolated rain by the afternoon. High: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Friday Night: Increasing clouds with areas of fog likely. Low: 65. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
