30° Night For the Brazos Valley, Spotty Rain Chance Wednesday Afternoon / Evening
Clear skies, calm wind, and a cool / dry air mass will lead us into a cold night for the Brazos Valley. Lows are slated to fall to the mid & upper 30s by Wednesday morning. Wednesday will make a quick shift: sunshine expected for the first half of the day, clouds roll quickly in midday to mid-afternoon. From those clouds -- while it is not guaranteed -- scattered rain may fall through the late afternoon and into the evening hours. That rain chance could continue off and on into the overnight hours, but is expected to end before sunrise Thursday. if it can all come together, around 1/4" of rain may be left in Brazos Valley rain gauges before the turkey goes in the oven or fryer Thanksgiving Day.
Speaking of Thanksgiving -- quiet but cloudy-ish day around here. Highs are slated for the low 60s (as long as the sun can break through the overcast from time to time). Another quick moving system is expected to bring another quick chance for passing rain by Friday (30%). High clouds & mild Saturday -- highs top the low / mid 70s -- before another strong push of winter air tanks highs to the blustery 50s to round out the holiday weekend. Planning on getting the lights on the house Sunday? May want to hold off -- wind is expected to blow from the NNW at 15-25 mph, with higher gusts.
Tuesday Night: Clear. Low: 38. Wind: NNE 0-5 mph.
