Spring-like afternoons ahead of our next weather maker Tuesday
After a few stunning days of weather across the Brazos Valley, we are flipping the script back to spring. Mild and muggy temperatures will great you as you step outside. Patchy areas of fog will develop sporadically through the morning, and if you do not see any fog, expect at least some low-level clouds to kick off the day. The fog will not hang around for too long, by mid-morning winds will pick up to help break it up. Expect winds to stay, well, windy out of the south at 15-20mph with occasional gusts 25-30mph. That will help bump afternoon highs to mid-70s areawide. Tuesday will be very similar in terms of winds and temperatures, but we build into a rain and storm chance. The timeline still needs to be ironed out, but now the best chance for storms comes as our next front moves through late Tuesday night through early Wednesday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has the Brazos Valley outlined for a possible isolated strong/severe storm or two as the next cold front pushes active weather through here -- a few strong wind gusts are the main concern. While the threat is very low, we will need to monitor for isolated storms developing out ahead of this line. If they can, a brief tornado concern cannot be completely ruled out between early evening and midnight.
Cold front arrives as we click the day to Wednesday, pushing the main line of rain/storms through here. Behind the front, a brisk northwest wind turns on, dropping morning temperatures to the upper 40s. Highs will struggle to break the 50s mid-week, with scattered, lingering rain left over for the first half of the day, at the least. A modest warm-up to the upper 60s Thursday before another cold front crashes in Thursday evening. Sunshine again for the upcoming weekend but with colder air in place -- mornings in the 30s/40s and highs in the mid/upper 50s!
Monday: Morning fog. Partly cloudy. High: 75. Wind: S 15-20, G. 25-30 mph.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 59. Wind: S 10-15 mph.
Tuesday: Cloudy with a 50% chance for showers through the afternoon and storms picking up in the late evening. High: 74. Wind: SE 10-20 mph.
Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with thunderstorms through overnight. Low: 50. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
