BRYAN, Texas — A surface high will continue to dominate the weather overnight Friday. This will allow temperatures to fall into the 30s & lower-40s by Saturday morning. The high begins to shift east Saturday afternoon, which will allow onshore flow to setup across the Brazos Valley. Temperatures will respond nicely to the onshore flow and climb into the 60s.
The moisture continues to feed into the area on Sunday, which will keep morning temperatures in the 50s with thick morning cloud cover. Cannot rule out areas of drizzle across the eastern & southern zone during the morning hours. A few breaks in the clouds will develop after the lunch hour on Sunday, which will allow temperatures to soar into the 70s.
A gradual upward trend in precipitation chances begin late-Monday. Precipitation chances really increase on Tuesday as a cold front moves south through the area late in the day. This will knock high temperatures down into the 40s continuing from mid-week to late-week. The rain chances will hang around through much of the week as the upper-level pattern becomes favorable to steer mid & upper-level Pacific moisture into the region. An upper-level storm system will develop across the Southwest with an upper-level ridge across northern Mexico. This will create a nice pathway for Pacific moisture to stream in, up and over the cold airmass in place. This will lead to high precipitation chances from Tuesday through Thursday. This will not be a heavy rain event with rain throughout the entire day but a period of spotty light to moderate showers. All rain is expected in the Brazos Valley but a wintry mixture is possible across western Texas.
