BRYAN, Tex (KBTX) - A Heat Advisory is in place for this afternoon across a majority of the Brazos Valley through the early evening Friday. Heat index values will approach 110° for much of the area.
Areas that are not under the Heat Advisory will still see heat index values above 100 degrees this afternoon and likely through the entire weekend.
Heat index will be at its highest in the 2pm-7pm time frame, so limit your time in the outdoors, if you can, through the early evening. Remember to stay hydrated and check on the sensitive groups (elderly, young children, etc) and keep the pets in check as well.
Believe it or not, a few of us will get a quick shower Friday and Saturday. That rain chance is isolated at best (10%). The main story and weather impact will absolutely be the heat over the next several days, as we begin a long stretch of days with afternoon high temps near 100, and overnight lows near 80.
