Cindy Exits, Another Shot at Rain This Weekend
What's left of Cindy will continue to move away from the Brazos Valley as we finish Thursday, eroding away clouds and taking what small rain chances were left with it, for now. We'll clear out tonight and lower temps into the mid to low 70s.
Friday starts mild and muggy, and finishes hot. We'll see a good bit of sun and perhaps a stray storm, but we'll then wait on a weak cold front sneaking toward our area Friday night for our next solid chance of rain. A few models are picking up a group of showers and storms headed our way Friday into early Saturday morning, with showers and the isolated storm continuing both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Suffice it to say an umbrella wouldn't be a bad idea for this coming weekend, though not all of us will need it.
Increased clouds and a nice northeastly wind should keep afternoon highs tame, near 90. A daily afternoon shot at rain continues into next week.
Thursday Night: Mainly cloudy with a 30% chance for showers and thunderstorms. Low: 76. Wind: N becoming S 5-10 mph.
Friday:Partly cloudy with a stray shower or storm. High: 96. Wind: SSW 5-15mph.
Friday Night: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers and storms after 10pm. Low: 75. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Saturday: Mainly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms.. High: 92. Wind: ESE 5-15 mph.
