Running 5° - 10° cooler across the Brazos Valley Tuesday in the wake of last night’s storms and cold front. This somewhat blustery day will settle as the sun drops below the horizon for the night. Clear skies. Calm wind. Dry air. Put it all together and it is the recipe for a cool, crisp night as lows fall to the 40s by sunrise Wednesday. Look up “perfection” in the ol’ Merriam-Webster and you will find the forecast for tomorrow: a crisp start turned perfectly comfortable with calm winds and ample sunshine. About the same Thursday, just this time with a bit of a returning breeze out of the southeast.

The next big change arrives Friday as a bowling ball of a weather system dives into and amplifies over Texas. Scattered morning rain is expected to transition to another band of showers and thunderstorms sometime between mid-morning and midday, sweeping west to east. While this will is not expected to be an all-day kind of rain, the current indications are it could be a quick impact as it leaves behind 0.75″ to 1.25″ with localized totals closer to 2″. This low also pulls in another shot of cooler Pacific air, keeping fall weather around for the weekend. Lingering overcast could give way to light sprinkles or drizzle Saturday morning.

Tuesday Night: Clear. Low: 48. Wind: NNE 0-5 mph.

Wednesday: Sunny. High: 78. Wind: E 5-10 mph.

Wednesday Night: Clear. Low: 52. Wind: SE 0-5 mph.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. High: 80. Wind: SE 5-15 mph.
