Winter Blows Back in for the Final Days of January
After a couple different doses of rain, and even a bout with sunshine, clouds and a much colder feel are back into the mix for Wednesday as most of us wake up near 40 degrees. Factor in a brisk wind that may gust 25-30mph at times, and it will *feel* like the low-to-mid 30s as we walk out for the day. Generally, overcast skies dottle overhead holding highs to the low 50s (but again, feeling colder with that brisk northwest wind).
Thursday is another day trapped in the 50s under cloudy skies, but this time we expect patchy areas of rain, mist, and drizzle to fall from those clouds. That is ahead of our next weather maker swinging by Texas. A better chance for rain comes Thursday night into early Friday morning -- mainly across the Southern Brazos Valley -- as this system swings overhead. Rain free & cool end to the week as we aim to fight our way to the low 60s. February is set to start mild as highs trend back to the mid-60s Saturday and the low / mid 70s Sunday and Monday. Short-lived warm up with another -- potentially bigger -- push of winter air on the schedule for mid-next week.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. High: 53. Wind: NNW 10-20 mph, gusting 30 mph before noon & 20-25 mph through the afternoon.
Wednesday Night: Mainly cloudy with areas of drizzle possible after midnight. Low: 43. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.
Thursday: Cloudy with a 40% chance for drizzle and sprinkles. High: 55. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.
Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy with a stray shower. Low: 44. Wind: NE 5-10 mph.
