BRYAN, Texas — A much needed break from the clouds & rain expected as we head into late week. A cold front worked its way through the Brazos Valley Wednesday morning, allowing drier air to filter in. Thursday morning will be sunny but temperatures will start out in the upper-30s & lower-40s, so make sure you have a jacket as you head out of the door.
Temperatures will remain cool Thursday afternoon with highs in the low to mid-50s under mostly sunny skies. A reinforcing surge of cool air will move in Thursday night as a surface high pressure builds south from the Plains. This will allow overnight temperatures Thursday to fall into the upper-20s & lower-30s so a frost & freeze are likely for the majority of the Brazos Valley. Make sure you protect the sensitive plants. This high will keep temperatures Friday on the cool side; highs will struggle in the upper-50s.
The surface high begins to move east heading into the weekend. This will allow moisture to creep north into the area beginning Saturday, increasing rain chances over the weekend. The rain will not be widespread but a spot shower is possible both Saturday & Sunday.
Higher rain chances enter the forecast next week with another cold airmass moving south.
