BRYAN, Texas — Temperatures overnight Monday will be mild with dewpoints high, making it feel sticky outside. Overnight temperatures will remain in the mid-60s. If winds can calm enough, areas of fog may develop after midnight and continue into Tuesday morning for the Brazos Valley. Any fog that develops will quickly burn off once the sun rises.
Tuesday will feature the last warm day before a cold front moves into the Brazos Valley late Tuesday night. An upper-level ridge centered to our southeast is responsible for the warm airmass in place. However, a disturbance will quickly move into the Plains by mid-week, which is what will send a cold front into the area. A few showers & storms are possible along the cold front late Tuesday.
Temperatures on Wednesday will struggle in the low-60s. Near coastal Texas, temperatures will be much warmer out ahead of the cold front. The cold front is expected to stall near the Texas coast then begin to lift north on Thursday as a warm front. This will allow temperatures to warm throughout the day into the 70s for Thanksgiving. Widespread cloud-cover and showers are likely Thursday. To the north of the Brazos Valley, a mixture of rain, sleet and snow is in the forecast for the Texas Panhandle. This may cause travel issues.
The reason the cold front will move to the north as a warm front on Thursday is due to a deepening system across the southwest. This system will move into the Plains by late week, which will help send a cold front south on Friday into Saturday. This cold front will help trigger severe storms for parts of Texas and Oklahoma. Stay tuned for details on this evolving situation by late week.
