Warming Back Up, Tracking Mid-Week Rain
After a weekend with temperatures struggling to bounce out of the 70s, autumn has been off to a cooler start. Monday is off to a cooler start with temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Mostly cloudy conditions likely going to persist through the morning hours which should keep temperatures a bit cooler, but by the afternoon, more sunshine is expected to peek through allowing highs to jump back into the mid- to upper 80s. An isolated shower cannot be ruled out through the day, but any rain chances should come to a close by about 8PM tonight.
Dry air sitting over top of us should really limit good chances for rain Monday. Tuesday, that dry air is still present, but more moisture starts to get pulled in from the Gulf helping to increase rain chances Tuesday into Wednesday. All of this moisture is going to be pooling over the area ahead of another weak cold front. As of right now, the front is looking to stall either just west of the Brazos Valley or over the area. This will increase rain and storm chances Wednesday and last through the end of the week as the front starts to wash out. Humidity will increase but rain chances late week and cloud cover should help to keep high temperatures in the mid-80s.
