Yeah....More Hot Days Ahead (Go Figure)
Plenty of heat to go around this weekend, with another chance to reach the triple digit mark across the Brazos Valley Saturday. Afternoon highs top off in the upper 90s to right at 100° -- but the heat index had things feeling more like 104° when you step out in the afternoon. Ample sunshine and very little wind means you need plenty of sunscreen and water on hand.
Afternoon highs are expected to drop to the upper 90s by Sunday through the weekend. A broad area of low pressure over the Gulf of Mexico could provide for a stray shower or thunderstorm -- but the chance is low. We'll add in a 10% chance of afternoon rain starting Sunday. A weak boundary nearing the area could bring up a better chance for rain (30%) by the end of the upcoming week.
Friday Night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: S 0-5 mph.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. High: 100. Heat Index: 103°-107°. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Sunday: Mostly sunny with a 10% chance of rain. High: 98. Heat Index: 103° - 107°. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
