Winds Decreasing Through Saturday, Sunshine Returns
The rain, mist, and drizzle are all pushing to the east of the Brazos Valley this evening. We are left with some cloud cover overhead, but that too will slide away from the area after midnight. This evening, those clouds are acting like a blanket to hold temperatures into the mid 40s, but once they start clearing out from west to east, temperatures will then make the drop into the upper 30s and low 40s.
Winds will remain gusty at times early on Saturday through the afternoon. By Saturday night, as the low pressure system continues to slide further away from Texas and high pressure starts to really settle in, winds will calm down. With high pressure in place, sunshine returns to the Brazos Valley and will stick around through the weekend helping to take temperatures from the upper 50s on Saturday to the low 60s by Sunday. This mild weather is here to stay through this next week. A weak cold front brings in our next chance for rain on Wednesday.
